Dechen Shak-Dagsay works on new album «L’Héritage»


After her last album «Jewel», Dechen Shak-Dagsay now works together with her producer Helge van Dyk on the new album «L’Héritage», which should be out in 2014. With it, Dechen aims at making old Tibetan pieces of wisdom accessible to 21st century people, with help from modern music composition. Dechen knows the Western as well as the Tibetan world – her father is the Tibetan cleric Dagsay Rinpoche who manages the monastery Chokri in Tibet. There, Dechen and her family also work on several social projects.

For the new album, Dechen and her producer work together with well-known musicians like Leland Sklar, Martin Tillman, Satnam RamgotraRhani Krjia, Neil Wilkinson and Hank Sizzoe (picture above on the left).

Dechen Shak-Dagsay is being supported by the Nia Schmidheiny Foundation.
