DOLPO, active since 2013, is an experimental drone-doom band inspired by the tradition and the musical structures of the sacred music of the ancient, obscure religious rituals of Tibet, Mongolia, Nepal and Northern India; ancient, forgotten cults that merged into Bön, Tibetan Buddhism and primitive Shivaism.From those ancient rituals, DOLPO adopted some of its instruments (telescopic trumpets Dung-Chen, human thigh bone trumpet Kangling, Dung-Dkar, Rolmo, Dhyangro, Dorje Bell) and the traditional throat singing "Gyer". Alongside those instruments are also electric guitars, bass, floor tom, Taishogoto, overtone flute, plus field recordings collected during long field research on the Himalayas.
