Nomad Studio


Nomad Studio is our mobile recording studio that travels throughout the world with our Yangchenma team seeking out living embodiments of authentic musical, artistic, and spiritual traditions, and recording them in order to learn from, honor, celebrate, preserve, and share these wisdom traditions with a broader audience through audio and visual means. We seek a shared and dynamic experience in which we create connections and relationships, give back to the communities that produced these rich traditions, and support the continued expression of these arts in a dramatically changing world.
