June 23,2017--To protect and carry forward Tibetan music and dance, for the first time ever Tibet collects and digitizes Tibetan folk music, court music and religious music. Meanwhile, a database has been established to store them. The action not only promotes culture protection and inheritance, but also develops an industrial chain of Tibetan music.
Despite rich resources of Tibetan music, the music audios and videos published are fragmentary and hard to meet the needs of audiences. Therefore, a company in Tibet is dedicated to collecting and preserving the music and dance in Tibetan regions.
“We found that many of the Tibetan music and dance are inherited orally, which is quite vulnerable. Although the authorities have selected some inheritors, they are getting older and older,” said Shi Yu, vice-general manager of the company.
The company has built a website and a music production base that are specialized for Tibetan music. By now the website has collected 4,469 songs and 1,000 MVs.
Next, the company will digitize some more Tibetan art forms and present them to audiences.
