Accolades from the World's Press:

"A deep unwavering Om filled Carnegie Hall when the audience sang to accompany Yungchen Lhamo's pristine, gliding vocal lines."
      --The New York Times

"The sheer beauty of her voice: spine-tingling stuff."
      --The Guardian (UK)

"At a fall concert in New York, Lhamo's devotional songs spun a hypnotic aural image of Tibet's spiritual warmth and resilience. China could take a lesson from the singer's words to the audience near the end of her set: 'Buddhism gives us strength, not muscle.'"
      --Elle

"The brilliant Tibetan singer Yungchen Lhamo"
       --The New Yorker

"Singer Yungchen Lhamo not only charmed with her sweetly broken English and sense of humor, she wowed."
       --Rolling Stone

"Tibetan singer Yungchen Lhamo impressed enormously."
      --New York Daily News

"That she sings without any accompaniment, and succeeds in holding the attention of the listener, places her in a special category. I cannot readily recall another singer capable of such a feat."
      --The West Australian

"Angel-voiced Tibetan singer Yungchen Lhamo"
      --Newsweek

"Lhamo carries the weight of the world with the grace of a dove. When she sings tonight at the Knitting Factory, it's as near to heaven as you're ever going to get on Leonard Street."
      --The New York Post

"Tibet's finest vocalist"
      --Marie Claire

"Pure, haunting, bell-like, clear, luminous. She sings from the heart to the heart."
      --The Yoga Journal

"The ethereal beauty of her voice"
      --The Times of London

"With her extraordinarily long hair blowing softly in the breeze and her tiny tiara shimmering under the lights, her voice soared through the chilly night air, transporting the crowd's collective imagination to the highest peaks of her homeland. With her gentle soul and angelic voice, this goddess created a memorable festival night."
      --Adelaide Advertiser

"Yungchen Lhamo raises her beautiful and passionate voice [with] great delicacy and sensitivity. What separates her from other 'World Music' female voices like Sheila Chandra and Enya is the immense spiritual power and emotional intensity."
      --Sydney Morning Herald
