Tenzin Choeygal

The powerful and captivating musical styles of Tenzin Choegyal returns for Homeground 2017.

On the Forecourt

This Event is:

Moving
Inspiring
Memorable
Free

 The haunting and hypnotic vocals of Tenzin Choeygal's traditional Tibetan roots evoke the world’s highest mountains and transports audiences to his remote and mystical homeland with every note sung.

Tenzin was born to a nomadic family in Tibet, escaped the Chinese occupation and was raised in a Tibetan refugee community in Dharamsala, India. Tenzin’s award winning songs have found a place in the complex tapestry of global sounds while collaboration with numerous Australian and international performers have allowed him to experiment with rhythm and structure and challenge traditional Tibetan musical norms. 

Catch Tenzin perform both days at Homeground 2017, or sign up to his musical workshop here.

Presented by the Sydney Opera House.

Homeground

For thousands of years, the land that Sydney Opera House is built on was a gathering place for the Gadigal people who danced and sang here.

Homeground continues the rich history of this site, formerly known as Tubowgule, by bringing the very best First Nations artists from around the world to the Opera House Forecourt for two free days of music, dance, workshops and markets.

Celebrate the power of contemporary artists and ancient customs under the sun and stars at Homeground 2017.
