As a show of solidarity with the Dalai Lama and Tibet, 20 artists have come together to release this historic double album on the eve of the Beijing Olympics.

These recordings – some original for the project and some acoustically driven recordings of previously released songs – express our common vulnerabilities and experiences in pursuing happiness, peace and freedom. Collectively, these tracks represent a heartfelt message of support for the path of compassion and non-violence championed by the Dalai Lama. Begun in May of 2008 and completed in two months, the outpouring of support from all corners of the world was unparalleled. Funds raised from the album will go to support peace initiatives and Tibetan cultural preservation projects important to the Dalai Lama. You can buy the album from iTunes or Amazon.


The above video, titled “Freedom is Expression,” has begun circulating the internet. It was released in conjunction with the album and was directed by Mark Pellington.

    Apparently, the Chinese government has responded by blocking access to the iTunes Store. You can read about it here:
