Ani Choying Drolma

Ani Choying Drolma is a Nepalese Buddhist nun and musician from the Nagi Gompa  nunnery in Nepal. She is known in Nepal and throughout the world for bringing many Tibetan Buddhist chants and feast songs to mainstream audiences. She has been recently appointed as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador to Nepal.

Ani Choying was born on June 4, 1971, in Katmandu, Nepal. She entered monastic life as a means of escape from her physically abusive father, and she was accepted into the Nagi Gompa nunnery at the age of 13. For a number of years, the monastery’s resident chant master (who was trained directly by the wife of Tulku Urgven Rinpoche) taught Ani Choying the music that she is famous for performing.
