Snow Lotus Trio


The Snow Lotus Trio is an ethnic music ensemble consisting of three sisters from Aba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in China: Rhywosi-man, Hasi-man, and Kersi-man. The trio was created in 2002 and came to instant prominence following its debut with the China Film Philharmonic. Since then it has performed on the nation’s most prestigious stages and appeared in several China Central Television documentaries exploring China’s musical traditions. In 2007 the Snow Lotus Trio’s performance was the highlight of the closing ceremony of the Shanghai Special Olympics. The sisters bring the minority cultural heritage to the global stage with their compelling performances featuring traditional costumes, dancing, and singing as they blend the timelessness of the beautiful Tibetan countryside with a contemporary aesthetic. The Snow Lotus Trio’s unique style has attracted millions of fans across China and is generating growing recognition abroad.
