    “On the surface, this CD is Tibetan vocals backed by flute and sitar. Relaxing music, good for meditation and any type of holistic medical treatment setting. But there is something else more profound.
    Before the end of the first song, I was practically in an altered state. I don’t think that I have ever experienced this affect from a CD before. Dechen Shak-Dagsay, eldest daughter of a Tibetan Lama, created this music with the intention of healing. So far, all of my Shiatsu clients say she is right on target; 100% of them gave her CD a ‘thumbs up.’ Many said it was one of their most powerful sessions. Some articulated that it seems unpretentious for that genre; a genuine ‘real’ feel to it. Others just said, ‘Wow…’
    I think that even your clients who request anything but vocals will like this CD, not only because the words can’t be understood (so they won’t be distracting) but also because one can hear the breath in her voice like the wind in the mountains. Wind carries change, hope and renewal. Her voice resonates with a frequency connecting to a profound elemental humanity.
    To say that this CD is powerful is an understatement. I highly recommend that you buy it, listen to it and work with it. But like the warning on prescription narcotics, don’t take with alcohol and definitely don’t drive or operate any heavy equipment!”

    “Stories of Tibetan refugees forced to choose between fleeing their homeland or being killed are some of the most heartbreaking I ever have heard. But, in spite of their suffering, Tibetan Buddhists maintain perspectives of peace and lovingkindness. Dewa Che which translates as ‘the great peace’, is a state of mind, body, and spirit that, perhaps, often eludes many Americans. On Dewa Che, Dechen Shak-Dagsay presents 11 mantras with a sweet, earnest voice that prompts listeners to pay attention to their inner selves with compassion, sympathy, and openness.
    Shak-Dagsay writes that she sings these mantras with the sincere wish that they may accompany all the people who listen to it on their path for inner peace. May they also be especially helpful to all the sick people and motivate them to activate their own powers of self-healing. The terrific liner notes detail preparatory and active meditations, as well as a meditation for self-healing, and explain how to benefit from mantras.
    Shak-Dagsay’s singing is set against a backdrop of Middle Eastern and Far Eastern instrumentation. Offer the lovely Dewa Che on your store headphones to give customers a private, up-close-and-personal experience of the comforting mantras.”

    “As mystical as the health benefits of yoga, tai chi or qi gong, Dechen Shak-Dagsay graces the world of the listener with peaceful serenity on Dewa Che, her debut CD.
    Dechen draws from ancient mantras and adds calming music and modest vocalizations. She is a natural artist, having no official training. This contributes to the beauty of her songs — they are untarnished by formality and unlimited by structure. She performs on the monochord as she sings, using it as a soothing backdrop.
    Ms. Shak-Dagsay is the eldest daughter of a Tibetan lama. She resides in Switzerland and has fixed her attention on preserving traditional Tibetan songs and dancing. She strives to bring awareness of these arts to Western people.
    Her pieces are lengthy, ranging from 4:44 to 10:15 minutes, but the time flows by as the tensions of the day fade away. Intended as an accompaniment for meditation or martial arts, this album has a variety of mantras. Each has a deeper purpose. They can be used for yoga (which is a method of discipline to cleanse mind and body), tai chi (Taoist discipline art form used for health and longevity) or qi gong (the skill of attracting vital energy through movement and meditation). But they can also be used for something as simple as relaxation.
    Whether or not you believe in the Buddhist way of life, you should not dismiss the character that is displayed by those that use their beliefs as a means of guidance into a life of positivity and good health. We need to purge ourselves of the lascivious negativity that impedes personal and spiritual growth. Ms. Shak-Dagsay easily makes the day’s frustrations fade to nothing. She is a warm glow in a dark sky. She promotes self-healing — becoming aware of your own body’s language, and learning to listen and respond when it speaks. For those seeking inner peace, don’t poo-poo the power of this positive contribution as the first step. As her CD states, ‘people who have learned to respond to the inner waves of discontent and keep them under control radiate peace and contentment.’The gate is open, will you walk through?”

    “This debut album of Tibetan singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay brings the spirit of Tibetan Buddhism to the world with her enchantingly beautiful voice.

May they also be especially helpful to all the sick people and motivate them to activate their own powers of self-healing, and explain how to benefit from mantras.
    Shak-Dagsay’s singing is set against a backdrop of Middle Eastern and Far Eastern instrumentation, and whether you relate to the specifics of each mantra or simply immerse yourself in this pure current of heartful beauty, you will find that her pure voice cuts through the veil of mental static. And succeeds in a direct sharing of her deep sense of immanent peace and bliss, from heart to heart. It conveys the Dharma in all its brilliant reality.”

    :

    “The Tibetan phrase ‘dewa che’ means ‘the great peace’ and that is what this debut album from Tibetan singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay produces. As an artist who identifies with both the culture of Tibet and that of the Western world, Shak-Dagsay sees her function as an agent of spiritual growth and a gate-keeper to the blissful vibrations of inner peace. She delivers with every exhale. Accompanied by flutes, performed by Peter Heinrich; sitar, koto and tampura, singing bowls, and harmoniums by Acama – this album has an extremely delicate texture to it that is as fine as a glass heart. There are 11 tracks on Dewa Che, each invoking a sweet mantra that inspires as it calms and relaxes. The tracks were produced with the valuable support of the Tibetan Lama, Ven Dagsay Tulku, and the authenticity of Shak-Dagsay’s path and talent is very apparent with each sung vibration. This release is a true reflection that inner peace can be achieved through meditation and positive musical expressions resonating from the heart. I highly recommend this album for meditation, yoga classes and healing environments.”
