Bringing the ancient wisdom of Tibet into the modern world of fashion

Bringing the ancient wisdom of Tibet into the modern world of fashion

My dear friends,

I am not a fashion victim, but I love beautiful fabrics, colours and style that makes every woman feel like a princess. It was the first time in my life that I attended a fashion show and even had one of the top designers of Poland of the show, Mrs. Viola Spiechovicz design a "Tibet inspired" lovely black dress for me. My producer Helge van Dyk, whose wife Natalia Glowacka is the initiator of the WARSAW FASHION WEEKEND, rearranged and created a new song that I could sing as a duett with famous Natalia Kukulksa while the "Spiritual Freelance" Tibet Collection of Viola was presented. We both enjoyed singing and performing together and I think together with the beautiful Sitar by Thomas Niggli from Zurich, we both enchanted this event in a very special way. 

Performing at Warsaw Fashion Week

Performing at Warsaw Fashion Week in Poland

I am really looking forward to perform the first time in Poland. Poland has always shown great interest in the Tibetan culture and I am happy I can 
bring my music to Poland during the Warsaw Fashion Week. I think modern societies like to be inspired by fashion and music that uplifts them and gives them
a good feeling. As a Tibetan Artist who grew up in Switzerland I am infused with both the Eastern and Western culture and this beautifully reflects in my music.
 
Performing at this year's Warsaw Fashion Week with the theme "SPIRITUAL FREELANCER" is very exciting and gives me the chance to introduce the positive energy
of the ancient Tibetan Mantras to an open minded audience who plays an important role to shape a modern society. I am also looking forward to collaborating with 
the famous Polish singer Natalia Kulkulska whom I met a month ago in Sopot. We will perform a song together that my producer Helge van Dyk created especially for
us for this event and I have the feeling that the Polish people will really love it. I also met one of the leading Polish designers, Viola Spiechowicz who will present her new
collection at the fashion show. I like her style and the beautiful fabric and colors that she uses.

Dear friends,

I am very happy to share with you the following news. Because of the success of my various music activities we have been able to initiate the DEWA CHE Foundation that has supported already many great social projects in Chokri in Eastern Tibet as well as in Dharamsala in India. This time we have been able to sponsor the traditional costumes for the "Tibet Culture Association Lithang in Switzerland". Lithang is very famous for its beautiful traditional costumes and dances. It is wonderful to see the young tibetan boys and girls from Lithang keeping up their graceful traditional dances and preserving an important part of the Tibetan Culture also here in Switzerland.

 

What a beautiful couple!

Dear friends,

On Sunday, Tina Turner is going to marry her love of her life Erwin Bach. I would like to extend my heartfelt wishes to this amazing beautiful couple.  

Yours truly, Dechen

150 new Computers on their way to TCV Dharamsala

I would like to share some great news with you.
Today 150 new computers are leaving Southkorea to find their way to the Tibetan Children Village in Dharamsala in India. 
On our Asia Tour in October 2012 we gave a concert in Southkorea a few hours south from Seoul in the ancient monastery of Hwa Eom Sa Temple. 
Professor Chium Park who had invited us for the 3.time to give my  concert at the annual Hwa Eom Sa Music Ritual had also invited his friend who is the minister of education of that district. After the concert the minister came to us and said that my music touched his heart for Tibet  beautifully and said he would like to propose his department
that the 150 educational computers which they usually donate to other asian developing countries should go to benefit the Tibetan community in India.
He asked me where they could serve the best and I suggested that they could be sent to the TCV in Dharamsala as they are always in need of good schooling equipment for their students.
I feel very happy to see that in a couple of days TCV will be receiving 150 new computers for their students enabling them to learn  computer science and acess to modern knowledge  which is so important for a broad general good education.
I am so thankful and feel so privileged to be transmitting the wisdom of our culture through my music and opening the hearts of people all over world. 
Yours truly, Dechen
