Songs of the World is used to describe the traditional singing styles, native languages, and instruments (drum, flute, and shaker) that are used to transmit the knowledge, values, traditions, history, & hopes of the Original Peoples to present and future generations.
Music is one of the few human expressions that bridges cultures and communicates in a language that everyone in the world can understand; It’s a powerful experience that touches people’s hearts and takes them on the journey to their own humanity. It is thus with great joy that Akhamani invites you to experience the world’s cultural heritage through the voices of Gazom Lhamo & Tha Wiyaka Wakan.
About the Performers
Gazom LhamoI was born in Kham Nangchen Chopdak, Tibet; A nomadic village surrounded by high mountains. Her grandmother taught her the traditional art of singing when she was very young.
At the age of 7, she started doing solo performances in front of large audiences. Her specialty is Khamlu singing. However, she also sings traditional songs, & chants Mantras. Since 2010, she has been living in France with her family.
All the songs come from my heart and I share them with everyone with pleasure.
Tha Wiyaka Wakan
Tha Wiyaka Wakan is of Dine´ ancestry. His clans are the Bitterwater people on his mom’s side, the Edgewater people on his father’s side, the Toweringhouse on his maternal side, and the Ones Who Walks Around on his paternal side.
He was born in the sacred mountains of the Dine’ people. His name is of a warrior, & was given to him from a vision of one of his uncles. Following in the footsteps of his ancestors, he is the keeper of the Dine´ origin stories, which were passed on to him through oral transmission.
His people still practice and maintain their ceremonies and language, which was derived from the sounds of nature
