Abstract

This study explores the forms and features of Tibetan music that existed in the past and its gradual change to the present. It looks at the traditional music that Tibetans followed and the amalgamation of the same with other forms and genres of music as it altered during and after the Chinese invasion of 1949. The study will be working under the idea that the Tibetan music has lost its traditional trace as the prominence of commercial marketing of music have escalated and how this was brought on by the mentioned invasion: the political, social, cultural and economical aspects which directly or indirectly changed the musical culture of Tibet. It envelopes the idea that the musical tradition of Tibet has been lost due to the strong administrative control of the Chinese government and how that led to the failure of the native Tibetans to safeguard the Tibetan traditional forms and genres of music.
