Techung is a Tibetan singer currently serving as Artist in Residence at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. He received his training at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts in Dharamsala. Techung and his band combine traditional and contemporary music to convey the message of peace, freedom and courage. They tour internationally and in 2009 performed along with with Philip Glass, Patti Smith and others at Carnegie Hall in New York City. His albums have met with critical acclaim and his music has been featured in films such as IMAX “Everest”, the “Dalai Lama Renaissance”, “A Good Day to Die” and many more.
“The goal For the Peace In Tibet Tour is to find a channel to heal the community through music, especially given the recent tragic lost of 40 Tibetans who burnt themselves for Tibetan freedom and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet”.
