Tibetan Musician to Perform at UW
March 31, 2008 — A performance of "Traditional Tibetan Song and Dance with Techung and Special Guests" will be presented Friday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center concert hall at the University of Wyoming.
The free event is presented by the College of Business M.B.A. Council and the Department of Music.
Techung, a prominent Tibetan singer and songwriter, is from the San Francisco Bay area where he is in exile. He is best known for his performances of traditional Tibetan music, dance and opera under the name Tashi Dhondup Sharzur. He uses his childhood nickname, Techung, when performing as a solo artist.
Whether performing in traditional or contemporary styles, Techung's dual goals are to revive Tibetan music in the Tibetan community and to expose his homeland's rich performing cultural tradition to the world community.
