Summary: Shining Spirit: The Musical Journey of Jamyang Yeshi, filmed in Tibet, India and Canada between 2006 - 2009, documents a recording project that brings together the family of Jamyang Yeshi, through music and the use of multi-tracking recording technology. With the help of Western friends, Jamyang, in exile in Canada, and his brother, Tsundue, in exile in the U.S., join voices with the family they left behind in Tibet. For the first time in a decade, they sing together once again. Shining Spirit is a testament to the power of music, the resilience of the Tibetan culture, and the enduring bond of a family separated by politics and geography.
