The Drepung Loseling monks are renowned for their unique multiphonic singing wherein they simultaneously intone three notes of a chord. They also use traditional instruments such as 10-feet long dungchen trumpets, drums, bells, cymbals and gyaling horns. Masked dances and elaborate costumes add to the splendor. 

On past tours, the monks have performed with Kitaro, Paul Simon, Natalie Merchant, the Beastie Boys and many others. In addition, two of their recordings reached the top ten on the New Age charts and their music was featured on the Golden Globe-nominated soundtrack for the film Seven Years in Tibet, starring Brad Pitt. 

Richard Gere Productions, Inc. and Drepung Loseling Institute are the tour’s sponsors.
