Asia Society Texas Center says
Robed in magnificent costumes and playing traditional Tibetan instruments, the Drepung Loseling monks will perform ancient temple music and dance intended to kindle world healing. The Loseling monks are particularly renowned for their multiphonic chanting known as zokkay (complete chord). Each of the main chantmasters simultaneously intones three notes, thus each individually creating a complete chord.

This performance complements the Mystical Arts of Tibet exhibition. From August 18-21, Tibetan Buddhist monks will construct a sand mandala and perform special ceremonies in Asia Society Texas Center’s Louisa Stude Sarofim Gallery.
