Ngawang Lodup, discovered by BBC Introducing, to appear at WOMAD
19th May 2015
This is the first year that world music has been included as a category in BBC Introducing, the BBC’s emerging talent finding scheme. One of the first world music talents to be discovered by BBC Introducing is Tibetan singer and ex-monk Ngawang Lodup.
Lodup grew up being carried on the back of his mother while she tended yak and sheep herds, learning the unique Tibetan folk-songs passed down through his family from a long line of famous Nomadic singers. His repertoire includes haunting tales of noble Tibetan warriors, warlords, and the snow mountains of Tibetan legend, paired with his unique artistry of the Dramnyen six-string lute.
His performance on the BBC Radio 3 Charlie Gillett stage will be simulcast live on BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6 Music on Sunday 26th July.
