Lotus Asian Voices - No. 7 July 2014


This program focus on the role of music and singing in Buddhist culture and devotion. 

We profile Nepali Buddhist nun of Tibetian descent Ani Choying Drolma who has become an international star singing Tibetian and Nepali Buddhist chants to the accompaniment of the guitar and percussion. The program includes excerpts of an interview given to Lotus Asian Voices just before she performed to a sell-out audience at Singapore‚Äôs leading performance arts venue, The Esplanade in April this year. 

We also explore the role of singing and chanting in the Sri Lankan Buddhist culture and speak to  Venerable Budugala Jinawansa Thera, a young Sri Lankan Buddhist monk and a media studies graduate.
