Rollicking Tibetan folk, afro-reggae guitar grooves and intricate Indian tabla… Sounds as if they were made for each other! Together, Tenzin Choegyal, Marcello Milani and Shen Flindell create a new joyful sound that transcends cultural boundaries.

“This is a combination of Africa, India and Tibet, that, for all its unlikeliness, has resulted in a musical masterpiece.” (Mike Raine, Indie-CDs)

Tibet2Timbuk2 has an eclectic repertoire resulting in an overall sound which is full and organic. All three musicians share melody, harmony, bass and percussion roles to create a solid yet easy groove.


 Dr Nicholas Ng (b. 1979) composes both contemporary classical and commercial music. As a performer, Nicholas plays the erhu (Chinese ‘violin’) for multicultural performances, multimedia artwork, theatre, dance and meditation. In 2008, Nicholas completed a PhD in composition and ethnomusicology with Prof. Larry Sitsky and Dr. Stephen Wild at the ANU School of Music, where he wrote a 50-minute chamber opera, Eclipse. He is now researching, composing and performing as a newly appointed Research Fellow at Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University and recently curated a 4-day festival Encounters: Musical meetings between Australia and China Encounters ..

Fascinated by the human voice, Nicholas is especially eager to combine voice with instrumental forces in innovative ways while marrying the ancient and modern through the use of traditional instruments and electronic sound.
