Gyuto Tantric Choir
Representing a rich Buddhist tradition founded in 15th-century Tibet, the monks of the Gyuto Tantric University joined the Dalai Lama in fleeing their homeland in 1959 and setting up a government-in-exile in northern India. They have been chanting in their multi-tonal style since the university's founding in 1474, and their liturgical arts—among the most complex and awe-inspiring in Tibetan Buddhism—have developed over the centuries on the isolated high plateaus of their mountainous land. "Without question," says composer Philip Glass, "they represent the spirit and culture of Tibet at its highest level."
