Quiet Mind (CD)

Nawang Khechog

Born of Tibetan nomads, Nawang Khechog discovered in childhood a deep affinity with the bamboo flute. In 1959, he fled to India
and spent 11 years as a Buddhist monk before bringing his music to the West. Despite worldwide praise for his work, Nawang
resolved in 1991 to return to mountain seclusion - until the Dalai Lama himself encouraged him to continue to share the power
of his music with others. Quiet Mind reflects the far-reaching travels of this remarkable musician. It is his most personal
transmission, a continuous prayer that imparts serenity to everyone it touches. With didgeridoo, Incan pan pipes, and ocarina.

Born in Tibet, Nawang Khechog spent his earliest years as the child of nomads. In his boyhood he first learned to play the
bamboo flute, an ancient instrument popular in rural villages throughout Tibet. After the brutal subjugation of Tibet by Chinese
Communists in 1949, Nawang and his family escaped to India. There he studied meditation and Buddhist philosophy, a path he
followed as a monk for eleven years - four of them as a hermit. In 1986, he emigrated to Australia where he first performed, and
his recordings achieved bestseller status. Nawang is best known for his collaborations with Kitaro, including a world tour
and performances on Kitaro's Grammy-nominated Enchanted Evening and Mandala albums. His live performances with Philip
Glass, Paul Winter, Laurie Anderson, Paul Simon, Natalie Merchant, and Baba Olatunji have received international acclaim.
