Bön Ritualmusik

Preserving the slow chant of the Bön tradition

Gyer-yang is the slow ritual chant of the Tibetan tradition of Yungdrung Bön.

A short description of the ritual >>Trowo and Phurpa<<, containing video demonstrations on gyer-yang can be found  -> here.

A summary on how to read the video demonstrations and some basic research on gyer-yang can be found  -> here.

The mere gyeryang data base with the video demonstrations, related manuscripts and transcriptions connected to the >>Trowo and Phurpa<< ritual and the ritual on the >>protectors of Bön<< can be found -> here.

The above research has been made possible through the artistic research project >>The Five Elements – Electroacoustics meets Bön<< at Folkwang University of the Arts.
