While it is vital to keep these Tibetan musical traditions alive, Tenzin also believes an even more precious legacy is that of Tibetan warm-heartedness, as personified by Tibet’s spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Over the years, he has enjoyed a successful international career as a musician, playing at such prestigious events as WOMAD and for Tibet House at Carnegie Hall, New YorkIn 2008 Tenzin founded the annual Festival of Tibet in Brisbane, Australia, which showcases Tibetan culture. Through his music and cultural activities such as the Brisbane Festival of Tibet, Himalayan Film Festival and Women with Wisdom concert series (Sydney Opera House, Federation Square) Tenzin shares the Tibetan story of what it really means in being human though his art.
In addition to his solo performances, Tenzin is an avid collaborator with musicians from diverse cultures, traditions and genres.

Night of dancing and entertainment on the Saturday 21st September to raise funds towards the development of our documentary, PHILOXENIA, the latest documentary by award winning Adelaide filmmaker, Anne Tsoulis, whose last documentary FROM UNDER THE RUBBLE won best documentary at the 22nd Arab Film Festival in San Francisco and Best International Documentary at the Jelly Fest Hollywood, and was nominated for best documentary at various Australian and international film festivals.
PHILOXENIA tells the powerful story of the heroes of Lesbos who between May-October 2015 helped rescue some 400,000 refugees landing on their shores. Why tell the story now? We find ourselves in a world where xenophobia is on the rise and we want to address the imbalance by promoting the word, Philoxenia, defined as kindness to strangers and the antonym to xenophobia, and by doing so promote its use in any discourse on migration and refugees.
Its world premiere will be at the Adelaide International Film Festival in October 2020.
We thank the Greek Orthodox Community of SA for its support in helping to sponsor the event.
