DECHEN's concert tour with the Jewel Ensemble continues
Two years ago they had to interrupt their tour, now it continues - as DECHEN's'emaho
'emaho - the Story of Arya Tara
' is the name of the beautiful new double album that was created during these 2 years. Dechen Shak-Dagsay
and her Jewel Ensemble
are happy to play live for you the music from this latest as well as popular pieces from her earlier albums.
As a pioneer in the singing of traditional Tibetan mantras in combination with Western musical sounds, Dechen Shak-Dagsay
was long considered an insider tip among lovers of spiritual music. Until 2006, when she came to the attention of Swiss television and the DOK program Daheim in zwei Welten
was filmed. The program was broadcast several times in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Since then, DECHEN
has become a household name in the DACH region as a Swiss artist with Tibetan roots. Her music has conquered a firm place in people's hearts. When she began working with Swiss producer Helge van Dyk
ten years ago, international attention for her music grew considerably, taking her as far as Carnegie Hall in New York. DECHEN
now gives concerts all over the world with her Jewel Ensemble
, which consists of top-class Swiss musicians.
The peculiarity of her music is that her songs do not only sound soft, meditative and calm, but in between they are quite groovy, melodious and come from a great inner power, which immediately transports the listener to the vast highland plains of Tibet. Sometimes, however, there are trance-like rhythmic rapped pieces that remind of the prayer recitations of the nuns in the Tibetan monasteries. The peace-promoting energy of the ancient mantras, especially of the patron goddess Arya Tara
, to whom the new double albumemaho
' is dedicated, are more important today than ever. They should help to overcome our fears, anger, sadness and pain and release a collective positive force for a sustainable, more peaceful and just world.
