Write to Lhundrup Drakpa

Lhundrup Drakpa ལྷ་མོ་སྐྱབས་

Lhundrup Drakpa, a popular Tibetan singer from Driru, Eastern Tibet, was detained in May 2019, less than two months after he released a song – “Black Hat”  – that criticised government policies.

After being held for over a year he was sentenced to six years in prison after a ‘closed-door trial’ during which he was not allowed legal representation of his choice. 

Lhundrub Drakpa is known by Tibetans for his devotion to Tibetan cultural and artistic traditions. He is one of the most popular Tibetan singers in the region performing songs that highlight Tibetan national identity and pride.

Lhundrup was beaten during detention and is in serious danger of further torture at the hands of Chinese authorities.
