Seattle: Seattle's 15th Annual Tibetan Festival, Tibet Fest, scheduled to take place from 28th-29th August, will be dedicated to the victims of the Kyigudo earthquake that shook the Tibetan region in April this year.
The Tibetan Association of Washington, who are organising the event, seeks to help young Tibetans establish stronger ties with their cultural heritage through song, dance and folk tales, whilst residing in their new communities.
The two-day event will feature a performance from Tibet's best known R&B singer, Phurbu T Namgral, along with traditional Tibetan performers, arts, handicrafts and foods. Expert speakers on Tibet will give talks, and a series of workshops will run throughout the festival.
