Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts

Arts School in Mcleod Ganj

This flourishing arts school keeps traditional Tibetan dance, music and colourful folk opera (lhamo) very much alive among the exile community. You can visit its folk museum and ask at the office for a tour (donations welcome for both).

TIPA stages irregular Tibetan cultural performances including a 1½-hour show of folk and ritual dance and song, Dances from the Roof of the World (which sometimes includes lhamo excerpts), and concerts by the popular electric folk fusion group Aa Ka Ma.
