Tibetan Monks Dance and Music
  • Edinburgh Fringe

'...a psychedelic whirl of chanting, dancing, drums, cymbals...' Times). Tibetan monks bring a moving and inspirational insight into the world of sacred music and monastic dance from the contemplative, mesmerising chant of Buddhist texts to the majestic brocade-costumed masked dances. Musical instruments from the tantric tradition are used: the conch-shell trumpet, horns made from human leg bones, and skull-drums, while the powerful sound of the majestic dungchen or long horns is accompanied by cymbals, bells and drums, evoking the atmosphere of sacred Tibet and an opportunity to experience a mysterious ancient culture.
