Namgyal Lhamo wins international award

Netherlands-based Tibetan singer/songwriter Namgyal Lhamo has been awarded Best Female Solo Artist from India/Tibet at the 2007 International Music Awards held by Britain's Musicaid along with American partners BroadJam Inc.

Her power-house track "Changkha" from the newly-released The Enchanted Land (Silk Road) ushered in votes from International audiences through a complex and detailed voting system that lasted over 50 days. The album has been brought out by Deep Emotions (India).

This is a rare occasion when Tibet has found a mention in a major international music award category, proving that music has the power and reach to cut across man made barriers, clearly indicating that artistic boundaries are limitless, a spokesperson of Deep Emotions told

Last July, Namgyal Lhamo was awarded "Best Female Artist" at the 2007 Tibetan Music Awards held in Dharamshala, where the Dalai Lama lives.

Her songs are published by Deep Emotions/Universal Music Publishing MGB. She released two albums this year: the Tibetan classical inspired 'Pure' and the contemporary 'The Enchanted Land' on the Indian label Silk Road, distributed in Europe and the USA by Harmonia Mundi.
