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.

Dechen Shak-Dagsay and Richard Gere

Dear friends, 
What a wonderful personality! I had the chance to meet
Richard Gere this morning in Zürich as he was here for the 8th Zurich Film Festival to promote his movie "Arbitrage" with Susan Sarandon and to pick up the "Golden Icon Award 2012". I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak to Richard and to express my thanks for his untiring support for Tibet and the preservation of our culture. He was happy to hear about all our social engagements in Tibet and encouraged me to continue this important social work through my music. Therefore I was honored to present Richard my current album "JEWEL" produced by Helge van Dyk. I am happy to feel his kindness and his keen interest. Yours Dechen
