80th Birthday of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Wiesbaden

Dear friends, I am still overwhelmed. Yet again I received His Holiness blessings for presenting the 'OM MANI PEME HUM' Mantra together with my DAY TOMORROW Ensemble.

Looking back at a great 2014

My book has arrived!

My dear friends!
My book just arrived. I am holding my book in my hands and would like to express my wish that it may contribute to give people a fresh and positive impulse in their lives. The wisdom of the Tibetan culture can help us all regardless of our origin or religious background to understand our mind and overcome negative emotions, which is the base for peace in this world. Peace can not be forced by weapons. Peace can also not be bought. True peace begins with each one of us recognizing and understanding  who we really are. That's why I am convinced, that this beautiful Philosophy of my culture hold an enormous peace promoting potential for the modern world of the 21st century. The book might be translated soon into English and I will be happy to let you know as soon as this happens.
With my sincere love! Dechen

Coming Soon..

Dear friends
I am happy and proud to be part of the new BEYOND project again - with Tina Tuner, Regula Curti and Sawani ..., three wonderful, powerful voices.
It will be called `BEYOND LOVE WITHIN` - and is dedicated to the Divine Mother, the goddesses and Saints like Tara, Mary and Paravati, to the female power within all of us. 
I have been able to contribute with some beautiful buddhist prayers that praise the qualities of Arya Tara, the Swift Liberator.  I received them from my dear father Dagsay Rinpoche.
I hope the power of this music, the lyrics and our voices will touch you as they touched us when singing it for this new album which will be released end of may.


Dear friends,
On Sunday, 2nd March 2014 Tibetans all over the world will celebrate their Tibetan new year.
LO means year and SAR means 'new' I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for
your kind friendship and your constant support for my music and my social works in Tibet.
May the Wood-Horse-Year 2141 be blessed with a lot of luck and happiness for you.
This year will be a very special year for me with 3 great album projects as well as a book project. I will be happy to share with you the special moments and photos
of all the exciting activities soon.
Yours sincerely,

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

Performing at Warsaw Fashion Week

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.

Amazing Guitar by Hank Shizzoe [nbsp


In the wonderful countryside of France, in the music studio of Chateau de Faverolles close to DIjon, my producer Helge van Dyk worked together with Hank Shizzoe. Hank is indeed one of the best guitar players and I am just thrilled by having him also on my album with his amazing quality of his work. I can assure you the new album will sound soo beautiful!

A special Concert

On 15th June 2013 I have been invited to perform together with my JEWEL Ensemble at the National Day of the Refugees in Switzerland. 

It means a lot to me to sing at this speical event to express my solidarity to all the refugees seeking a new home in Switzerland. Most of them have left their homelands due to tragic faith just like my family about 50 years ago. We had the privilege of having been received with open arms by the Swiss.
