KYAB YUL-SA is the title of a singular artistic project : a musical journey through traditional musics, which are revisited, to constitute the starting point of original and contemporary compositions.
KYAB YUL-SA was born after the meeting between Lobsang Chonzor, a traditional tibetan musician, Youenn Rohaut who plays musics from Northern Europe, and Julien Lahaye who plays the traditional instruments from Middle-East and more particularly from Iran.
In tibetan language, KYAB means “exile”; YUL-SA means “the place”, “the land”
LOBSANG CHONZOR was born in exile in India. As a child he received the heritage of an ancestral culture from his parents and tibetan Masters and as an adult, Lobsang Chonzor decided to dedicate his life to the living Art and by his artistic gesture, to carry his native country Tibet.
