Tibetan Losar Fest To Feature Indian TV Sensations Raghav and MJ 5

India’s Slow-Mo Icon Raghav Juyal aka Coakroaxz and India’s Dacing superstars MJ 5 will be featuring at the Losar Music Fest at Bylakuppe Tibetan Settlement in Karnataka. The organisers; LOBYON Entertainments says its the first of its kind. Losar Music Fest 2016 is scheduled for 10th and 11th of February 2016 and it also features 6 Tibetan artists Choedak, Sogshod Dhargyal, Tsering Choezom, Tenor, Sonam Topden (Facebook’s singing sensation) and Mariko.

The name LOBYON comes from the names of the its founding couple Lobsang Dhondup and Tenzin Younten. Mr. Lobsang is himself an independent singer who used to sing with his band “Born Refugee”. Later published an album titled Gompa Ma Tsum in 2007

Raghav is a very popular artist who came to be known from the Indian reality show called Dance India Dance. He is known for his unique and popularized slow motion dance that he introduced to the Indian TV show. Raghav or more popularly known as Croakroaxz is a familiar Indian TV icon and enjoys a huge Tibetan fan base. He was also featured in one of lead roles in the recent Bollywood hit movie ABCD 2 along with Varun Dhavan and Shraddha Kapoor. MJ 5 is the winner of another Indian Reality show called India’s dancing superstar (2013) who were so much loved by the whole country for their unique choreography and performances on Indian songs inspired by Michael Jackson.

When we asked the organisers about the reason behind hosting the popular Indian artists, they told that there is a large number of Tibetan youth who love dancing and singing. Bringing these TV icons to the live stage among the Tibetans would inspire them to pursue their passion and install confidence to take part in various Indian popular reality shows in the coming days. Besides there is a large Tibetan fan base for these artists.

The organizers told that there will be four performances by each group of the two artists while at the same time the young Tibetan audiences will be given a chance to learn and do the slow motion dance with the Croakcoaxz himself.

The organisers also told that both of the artist groups are pleased to be a part of the Tibetan new year celebrations and they are really moved by the presence of large Tibetan fan base for them. The event is a big venture in the Tibetan community and the organizers are betting big on this fest. According to the past estimates of such events, they are expecting more than 7000 audience per day. The entry fee for the show is Rs. 300 per head.

This Losar Music Fest is a wonderful initiative from the LOBYON Entertainments which is a fusion of Tibetan and Indian artists. We would like to wish them for a very successful venture here.
