Yungchen Lhamo Set to Sing in Kingston
Fionn Reilly
Yungchen Lhamo
To benefit the One Drop of Kindness Foundation, Tibetan singer Yungchen Lhamo will perform at the Old Dutch Church in Kingston on April 22 at 7pm.

Lhamo is a Grammy-nominated paragon of the world music stage and a symbolic ambassador for the culture and plight of the Chinese-dominated Tibetan people. In addition to singing for the Dali Lama and meeting with the Pope, she has performed at prestigious venues and events across the globe with Bono, Natalie Merchant, Peter Gabriel, Philip Glass, Patti Smith, Michael Stipe, Sheryl Crow, Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan, and others. The One Drop of Kindness Foundation, which she founded in 2004, has brought help to underserved groups in Tibet, Nepal, India, America, and Ireland, providing single mothers, children, and elderly people with clothing, shoes, prosthetic limbs, and educational supplies; a vital farming aqueduct project in Nuguchu received building materials via the foundation.

Accompanying Yungchen Lhamo for the concert will be musicians Bob Bottjer, Will Calhoun, Peter Wetzler, and a special guest artist. Tickets are $15 and available via Lhamo's website.
