Ani Chöying Dolma (born June 4, 1971 in Kathmandu, Nepal), also known as Choying Drolma (Ani, “nun”, is an honorific), is a Buddhist nun and musician from the Nagi Gompa nunnery in Nepal. She is known in Nepal and throughout the world for bringing many Tibetan Buddhist chants and feast songs to mainstream audiences.

In 1994, guitarist Steve Tibbetts visited the nunnery and eventually recorded much of the Tibetan music with Ani Chöying on two albums. The recordings, titled Chö and Selwa, were released to critical acclaim. Steve Tibbetts & Chöying Drolma embarked on small performance tours, which included shows at several historical Tibetan monasteries.

Sina Vodjani recorded an album in collaboration with Ani Chöying Dolma.
