Plateau

Soname Yangchen’s voice—and story—soars in her new album, Plateau. A singer/songwriter of contemporary Tibetan mountain songs, she uses spirited, free-flowing lyrics and sounds to reflect on her lost homeland.

As a young girl, she fled slavery and Chinese occupation in Lhasa, crossed the Himalayas, and became an exile. But through her music, Yangchen returns home to Tibet. Steeped in tradition, Soname’s songs hold the stillness of memory, harmonizing the old with the new, the past with the present, and loss with possibility.
