The entire world knows Tibet is a country of highlands, grasslands, thick forests and abundant natural resources. Areas inhabited by Tibetans boast huge cultural diversity with folk songs and dances playing a major part.
Almost every Tibetan can sing and wherever there is a crowd, there is bound to be dance. Tibetans sing anytime, anywhere, for any event. They dance at festivals, weddings, gatherings, New Year and even during their leisure time. The songs offer greetings and good wishes or tell stories of drinking chang (Tibetan Wine) or of lost love. Themes and styles vary greatly depending on the region in Tibet the songs are from.

Historical documents show folk religion and sorcerers in Tibet have been incorporating popular dances into their culture for thousand of years. The Wild Bull Dance, Yak Dance, Deer Dance, Crane Dance, Peacock Dance, Sorcerers’ Dance, Drum Dance and other kinds of folk dances have been passed down from generation to generation. Folk songs are usually used or to the accompaniment of the Pi Wang (fiddle) or the Dra Nyen (long-necked lute). Most folk dances are performed in a circle.

Lin Lerner, an American scholar of Tibetan dance, has noted, ”Dance in Tibetan culture is an enjoyable entertainment performed at social functions and a dramatic vehicle for presenting legendary stories (opera) and religious information (religious dance).” She has categorized Tibetan dance into folk, religious and opera. A crucial point made by Miss Lerner is that in contrast to folk dance, ”ritual dance has been composed by individual great teachers. It is recorded in texts and has a set pattern that must be performed accurately.”

This lovely culture does not only belong to Tibetans; it belongs to everyone on our Mother Earth so Tibet World preserves it for the world.
