Nelung Tsering Topten aka Acho Tom-la is one of the most well-known versatile Tibetan singers and musician in exile. Switzerland based Acho Tom-la has performed his distinctively traditional music for almost 40 years. After completing his training at the Tibetan Institute for Performing Arts in Dharamsala (in early 1980s), he immigrated to Switzerland and has since released over six musical albums.
Acho Tom-la has graciously accepted our invitation to perform live/ unplugged version at JFK High School on 29 October, 2016. To the Bay Area Tibetan Community, this gathering also marks a very important yearly event to celebrate the US Congressional Gold Medal award, the countryâ€™s highest civilian honor awarded to His Holiness The Dalai Lama on 17 OctoberÂ 2007.
