GADEN NGARI TOUR 2017 SACRED MONKS’ ACTIVITIES
Entry Requirements: 8+
This one and a half hour stage performance combines multi-phonic chanting and music into an unforgettable experience. The pieces are drawn from authentic temple activities, performed for thousand of years in Tibet. The ancient rhythms and colourful intricate costumes delight audiences of all ages. The monks use multi-phonic chanting known as zokkay (complete chord). Each of the main chantmasters simultaneously intones three notes, thus each individually creating a complete chord. The Tibetans are the only culture on earth that cultivates this most extraordinary vocal ability. The first half of the performance is of a spiritual nature, which will offer the audience a chance to experience the ancient Buddhist chants and sacred rituals. All these rituals are deeply meaningful and symbolic. The second half of the performance is a cultural performance.
