Galway International Arts Festival presents Yungchen Lhamo

July 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

World-renowned, award-winning Tibetan singer Yungchen Lhamo returns to Galway for the first time in 20 years to perform in the ambient setting of St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church. Yungchen’s unique, innovative voice promotes sound healing and spiritual awakening, and includes the ability to sing long-sustained pure notes.

Yungchen’s name translates as Goddess of Melody. In 1989 she made the dangerous, month-long 1,200-mile journey, on foot across the Himalayas to Dharamsala in India to pursue her Buddhist practice. There, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama encouraged her to use her unique voice to promote Tibetan culture around the world. Her seventh album, One Drop of Kindness, was released in September 2023 by Peter Gabriel’s Real World Records and won the Asia & Pacific category at the Songlines Music Awards 2024.
