Lesson 9: Tibet

This week we hold music class in a place known as the “Roof of the World”: Tibet. This disputed region is at the same time one of the most politically unsettled places on earth and, if you ask most anyone who has visited, one of the most peaceful.


OVERVIEW: The first important thing to know about Tibet is that not everyone agrees what “Tibet” is . . .

MUSIC: Most traditional Tibetan music is religious in nature, reflecting the deep influence Buddhism has on Tibet’s history, culture and daily life . . .

LANGUAGE: Language in Tibet, as in so many countries, is not just a jumble of words one uses to get through the day, but an essential expression of one’s history, culture and personal will . . .

WHEN YO GO THERE: Should you, a thoughtful traveler, visit Tibet . . . ?
