Porok karpo is ready to fly!!!

Porok Karpo,the band. The magical story of a new Tibetan pop and rock culture!!!!

One of my friends heard some of our latest recordings and said

” WOW this is going to change the whole Asian pop culture!!!” Well hope you will all feel the same! If you want to hear us…come to Munich to hear us at the FUNF SEEN FESTIVAL.

For a long time Tibetan singer «Loten Namling» carried the wish to bring Tibetan freedom songs to the western world. Tibetans in Tibet risk their lifes to sing these songs. Many of them are in prison for simply asking for basic human rights and the return of the Dalai Lama!
So in summer 2014 he approached Swiss guitarist and Producer «Patrick Lerjen» to help him realise his vision.In a careful process Lerjen was then seeking for an organic and powerful fusion of these melodious Tibetan songs with the earthy sounds of Western Alternative Rock.What came into being, is a perfect allegory to the life of exiled Tibetans away from their homeland, still caring their heritage within their hearts.Namling and Lerjen were both truly surprised and amazed by the beauty of the music that rose from the melting of these two worlds.
With Mik Keusen (piano), Philipp Moll (bass) and Muso Stamm (drums) they where lucky to find the perfect companions to complete this extra ordinary TIBETAN -SWISS band Porok Karpo, thus fulfilling the vision of Loten Namling.
Porok Karpo’s music is both raw and filigree, where intimate sceneries lead to powerful episodes. The raw rhythmic fundament by drums and bass combined with evolving piano & guitar patterns bulid the landscape in which singer Loten Namling tells the story of the the Tibetan people and their struggle to lead a self-determined life.

Here are the selfies with my band members.
Marco is our new bass player substituting Philip Moll when ever he needs to be.

One Big leap for Poro Karpo is that the wizard of all SOUND MIXER, Betrand of the famous YOUNG GODS will be our official band sound engineer. Three cheers!
