Was proud to hear that theres this monk from india who is on the Grammy list .  And the other thing is hes lost it this time was the latest news. The monk from Arunachal Lama Tashi, Singer, is the Grammy nominee that we are talking about. The latest trend is that the chantings by this monk from the northeast has reverbrated his voice all across the west.

He was shortlisted for “Best Traditional World Music Album (Vocal or Instrumental) ” category. He lost to Ali Farka Toure and Toumani Diabate’s album In The Heart Of The Moon, but the nomination was enough of an honour.

Former principal chant master of the Dalai Lama’s Drepung Loseling Monastery in south India, Lama Tashi moved to AP in 2004 and is currently Principal, Institute of Himalayan Studies at Dahong. His album Tibetan Musical Chants, produced by US-based author Jonathan Goldman, was picked as one of the top five in the world.
