This Sunday, November 19th, North Harrow will host an ‘unusual’ music event organised by Ruislip charity Lelung Dharma Trust.
The Gyuto Monks of Tibet, known for their sacred chants and overtone singing, will perform at Peace House, Parkside Way, from 3pm to 5pm.
Tickets for the event are priced at £20, with children’s tickets (under 12) available for £12. All proceeds from ticket sales will contribute to the Gyuto Monks’ mission for world peace. The tradition of overtone singing by the Gyuto Monks dates back to 1475, originating from their founder, Jetsun Kunga Dhondup.
The monks gained recognition in the West through recordings by David Lewiston and Windham Hill Records. Their album, “Pure Sounds,” was nominated for a Grammy in 2011 in the Best Traditional World Music Album category.
The Gyuto Monks have also collaborated with notable artists, including performances with the Grateful Dead and contributions to albums like Mickey Hart’s “Supralingua” and Van Halen’s “Balance.”
