The Dalai Lama’s Inner World
Join us for this unique live project of mantras and wisdom recorded by the Dalai Lama, set to a resonant soundscape composed by Auckland musician and producer Abraham Kunin.
Songs from the Dalai Lama’s debut album, Inner World, will be presented live as an immersive sensory experience. Lush visuals will accompany the Dalai Lama’s recordings alongside an impressive nine-piece band featuring some of New Zealand’s finest musicians, plus guest artists on taonga puoro and sitar.
Inner World was driven by executive producer Junelle (Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Tūwharetoa) and her vision to create this work with her longtime teacher, “to help us in times of difficulty.” The Dalai Lama enthusiastically accepted her request, stating: “Music has the potential to transcend our differences and return us to our true natures of goodheartedness.”
Bring a meditation cushion or take a seat, and enjoy this sublime night of listening.
“BYO cushion” ticket option, please note you will need to bring your own cushion to sit on the floor of the Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall.
Early Bird tickets are available until 11:59pm 6 January 2022, or until allocation is exhausted.
“A decidedly new age flow with plenty of ethereal instrumentals. Anchored by a steady bass and drum groove that The Dalai Lama rides deftly.”
“The messages couldn't be more poignant for our current social climate and needs as humanity.”
