Lama Gyurme was named "Oumze" (Master of Music) during his first 3 years retreat for the simple reason that his voice is an incredibly rich source of sonic beauty.
This unique collaboration with keyboardist/arranger Jean-Philippe Rykiel highlights the transcendental chants as the arrangements encourage the medium for absorbing the healing and purifying nature of the message.
LAMA GYURME (Pronounced Djiurmé)
Born in Bhutan in 1948, Lama Gyurme exhibited very early exceptional qualities and a strong attraction for the monastic life. At the age of four he was entrusted by his family to the monastery of Djang Tchub Tcheu Ling in Bhutan, where his inclination for sacred music was rapidly revealed. He became a permanent resident of the monastery at the age of nine and received a complete religious education (sacred texts, writing) and an initiation into the traditional arts, such as music.
