Tenzin Choegyal
“Be the Ocean”
featuring CYE WOOD

A musical journey to the heart of Tibet.

One of the world’s finest Tibetan musicians, Tenzin Choegyal feels a particular connection to the music of the Himalayan plateau and remains dedicated to preserving Tibet’s musical traditions. At the same time, he effortlessly embraces diverse genres and musical styles, bringing Tibetan music firmly into the contemporary world. Tenzin’s talent as a singer-songwriter has earned him a 2021 Grammy nomination and established him as one of the most significant Tibetan performers on the international stage.

Cye Wood — one of the Byron Shire’s very own, from Mullumbimby — is a gifted Australian composer and multi-instrumentalist who has developed a unique improvisational style on violin and is highly respected for his unique artistry and musicianship. They come together in a beautiful fusion that crosses cultural boundaries and conjures up images of the high plains and mountains of Tibet.

Tenzin takes audiences on a musical journey which transcends cultural boundaries and reveals ancient wisdoms. Tenzin sees music as a universal form of communication with no boundaries, “like drifting clouds that fly freely over the man-made geographical borders in this infinite space of possibilities.” For Tenzin, music is life, no matter where he is. “My music has evolved through my own journey from Tibet to India to Australia and around the world. But wherever I am in the world, my music also connects me to my homeland of Tibet.”

Cye — who has performed with numerous artists including Eartha Kitt, Lisa Gerrard, Tim Finn and Christine Anu — joins Tenzin for his 2023 Be the Ocean tour. In a long list of music projects and collaborations Cye has contributed string arrangements and solo violin to numerous albums, dance performances and film projects. His unique improvisational style on violin blends perfectly with Tenzin’s soaring vocals and the distinctive, spontaneous melodies of the Tibetan nomad.

“Be the Ocean” is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
