Tibetan Buddhist Ritual Music of Himalayan Nepal.

From the land of the snow-covered peaks and the hidden valleys of the Himalayas come the stirring sounds of Tibetan Buddhist ritual chants and prayers. Nestled in the secluded Solu Khumbu region of Nepal, home to Mt. Everest these chants and rituals are performed by the monks of Tengboche Monastery and the nuns of Thupton Chöling. Featuring the timeless beauty of unaccompanied voices and the powerful sounds of ritual bells, drums, horns and trumpets, these prayers invoke the blessings of wisdom and compassion. Recorded on location, these chants offer a glimpse into the rich, ancient traditions of the inhabitants of this sacred land.
