The Journey of Cleansing the Mind musical staged in Lhasa


On the evening of May 24, a musical about environmental protection sent shockwaves along the banks of the Lhasa River in Tibet.

“I hope that through this concert, more people will realize the issue of environmental protection and participate in environmental protection, so that we can leave clear water and blue sky for the future generations,” Basang Tsering, one of the leading actors, said.


Tenzin Yeshe showed the dramnyen (six-stringed instrument) to the audience. He said, “Now in many people’s minds, the dramnyen is an old musical instrument, something that grandparents will play. But what I want to tell you is that traditional culture can also be very fashionable.”
