Tenzin Kunsel started singing at age five and has performed in cities across the US and the world. In 2010, Kunsel performed at New York City's famed Carnegie Hall where she was introduced by world famous composer Philip Glass who wrote the music for the movie Kundun. Kunsel released her first album last year, a compilation of classic Nangma and Toeshey songs. She tells VOA that through her album, she is hoping that more young Tibetans will discover and learn to appreciate one of the most beloved musical traditions of Tibet.
