30–31 December – Celebrate the Coming New Year – Yungchen LHAMO (Tibet)

Celebrate the Coming New Year with Tibetan singer Yungchen Lhamo

Friday 30th and Saturday 31st December

Ring in the 2012 New Year in a most exceptional way, by participating in a workshop led by internationally acclaimed Tibetan vocalist Yungchen Lhamo.

The Czech Republic has already seen Yungchen perform live at the Colours of Ostrava festival and at the Caravan of Voices concert series. Now, having accepted an invitation from Hlasohled - Voicescope, a Center for the Human Voice, she will return to the Czech Republic, to lead a workshop titled "Sing Yourself to the New Year,€ which will end just minutes after midnight on the day of the New Year.


Tibetans have long believed in the transformative and healing powers of the human voice. The goal of this vocal workshop, which is open to all, is to strengthen one's inner self through guided song, chants, and spoken prayer.

Yungchen will work closely with participants to help them, in her own words, "use the therapeutic medicine of sound to tap into their emotions, awaken their creative powers, and vitalize their body, mind, and soul.€
