Tenzin Choegyal is well-known for his musical performances and collaborations, many of which draw attention to Tibetan culture and the lives of Tibetans living in exile. For Tenzin, Woodford Folk Festival has become a pilgrimage into the world of sounds and friendships. This year he has organised a visit from three Tibetan Nuns of Kopan Khachoe Ghakyil Ling Nunnery in Nepal. Tenzin and the Kopan nuns will perform a Prayer for Peace concert at the Wauchope Arts Hall on Saturday January 5, followed by a meditation (see details below). Kopan nuns living in exile rarely participate in tours this far from home, so the opportunity to learn some of the traditional Tibetan music, chanting, and guided meditation is unique.
All proceeds from the concert and raffle will go to support the Kopan Khachoe Ghakyil Ling Nunnery in Nepal.

The Prayer for Peace meditation will share some of the most distinctive aspects of traditional Tibetan chanting and Chod practice, which is distinctive to the female practitioners.
This fundraising event for the Kopan Khachoe Ghakyil Ling Nunnery in Nepal is a unique opportunity to experience the gift of traditional Tibet music and culture, while at the same time providing valuable humanitarian assistance.
The Kopan nuns will share words of wisdom through beautiful mantras and Chod chants and invoke inner peace through meditation.
The Khachoe Ghakyil Ling Nunnery in Nepal continues to preserve Tibetan Buddhist culture in exile, since most Tibetan nunneries were destroyed during the cultural revolution, keeping ancient traditions alive.

Fresh from Woodford Folk Festival, The Imprints are bringing their high-energy blend of dance and world music to audiences down the East Coast of Australia.
Armed with a violin, synth and various FX pedals, Willow Stahlut creates deeb sub base lines and weaves a melodic tapestry which is complemented by Linden Lester's visceral energetic approach to the drums. Their kaleidoscopic sound and use of layering has festival crowds buzzing.
This is definitely a gig for the young folk as well as the Wauchope Arts crowd interested in world music inspired by African, Indian and Eastern European styles.
