Lhamo’s Australian debut album Tibetan Prayer won the ARIA Australian Record Industry Award for best Folk/World/Traditional Music release in 1995. She is the first Tibetan singer to win a prestigious music industry award. The success of that record led to her signing with Peter Gabriel’s Real World label. Her first record for the label, Tibet, Tibet, mainly features powerful acapella renditions of original compositions — authentic Tibetan Buddhist prayers and songs. Her next recording, Coming Home was a collaboration with producer Hector Zazou, showcasing her beautiful voice, and also featuring chanting by Tibetan monks, a wide range of mostly modern Western instruments, and the benefits of multi-track recording, enabling Lhamo’s voice to be layered repeatedly.
Yungchen Lhamo’s much-awaited album Ama (which means Mother in the Tibetan language) was released in April 2006. Featured artists include Annie Lennox and Joy Askew.
