Yangchenma Arts and Music

connecting humans

Yangchenma (Tibetan: དབྱངས་ཅན་མ།) is the Tibetan name of Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom, higher learning, music, and the arts. She transcends culture and sectarianism, embodies the all-embracing female healing energy, and expresses and educates on all that is vital to the human spirit through the instruments of music, speech, and arts.

Yangchenma Arts and Music celebrates the richness and diversity of human cultures through their artistic and musical wisdom traditions, kept alive through the connection and shared experience of humans throughout the world.

Live concerts, workshops and educational cultural immersions are offered at Pure Land Farms: Center for Tibetan Medicine, Meditation, and Rejuvenation in Topanga, California and in collaboration with other venues in the Los Angeles area and internationally.

Our Nomad Studio travels the world seeking out the human embodiments of living authentic traditions, and recording them in order to learn from, honor, preserve, and share their uniqueness, while giving back to the communities out of which they emerged and flourished.
