Gangjong Doeghar

It is a performance group set up in 1994 and sponsored by Tibet Foundation. The group is based in Kalimpong, India, and contributed to the Foundation’s efforts to preserve and carry on the Tibetan culture through performing arts. Most of the Gangjong Doeghar artists are usually graduates of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Cultural Institute (ITBCI) and the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA). The letter is the only residential academic institute of its kind offering professional training in exile.

The company provides trainings in Tibetan dance, music and songs. Gangjong Doeghar also undertakes national and international tours to raise awareness of Tibetan artistic culture. It has successfully toured India, UK and Europe.
