Dhasa: Tibetan singing sensation Alan Dawa Dalma will play at the Shibuya Bunkamura Orchard Hall in Tokyo, Japan, fulfilling a life long dream of hers. Known simply as Alan in Japan, the 22 year old was born in Dhartsedho county, eastern Tibet and sings in her native ethnic Khampa dialectic, as well as Chinese. Since moving to Tokyo in 2006 following her discovery by Avex Trax, a Japanese record label, Dalma has wowed crowds with her powerful voice.
Following the Tibetan tradition, she was bestowed with her name, which means "a heavenly maiden of the moon" by a Lama (Buddhist teacher) at birth.
