Healing mantras with live music.  

Join us for this unique live project of mantras and wisdom recorded by the Dalai Lama, set to a resonant soundscape composed by Auckland musician and producer Abraham Kunin.  

Songs from the Dalai Lama’s debut album, Inner World, will be presented live as an immersive sensory experience. Lush visuals will accompany the Dalai Lama’s recordings alongside an impressive nine-piece band featuring some of New Zealand’s finest musicians, plus guest artists on taonga puoro and sitar. 

Inner World was driven by executive producer Junelle (Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Tūwharetoa) and her vision to create this work with her longtime teacher, “to help us in times of difficulty.” The Dalai Lama enthusiastically accepted her request, stating: “Music has the potential to transcend our differences and return us to our true natures of goodheartedness.” 

Bring a meditation cushion or take a seat, and enjoy this sublime night of listening. 

“Exactly the un-cynical balm we all need right now.” NME
