12 october 2011 001Dharamshala: The reliable sources said that popular young Tibetan singer Choegon - also known as "Little Kunga" after a famous Tibetan singer - has been arrested by Chinese police. The arrest is suspected to have occurred on 25 September 2011.

Choegon, 19, a popular singer amongst Tibetans, was invited to a music concert in Tibet's capital, Lhasa. During the journey to Lhasa, Choegon is reported to have been arrested by Chinese police.

Choegon, from Jomda county in East Tibet, is a famous figure in the Tibetan music scene. The reasons for his arrest remain unclear although it is thought that Chinese authorities may believe Choegon to be pushing a pro-Tibetan political agenda through his music. Choegon's relatives has so far been unable to locate him. His whereabouts remain unknown.

Although there are many music videos by Choegon online, we have selected two, “Listen Up” and “I Want to go to Lhasa”.

“Listen Up”
The good path to securing peace
Arises from the kindness of the Father in his 70s
If you really are a good child of the kind Father
Listen up!
Remember this path with all your heart

The youth of the pure father tongue
Are the soul of Tibetans in black nomad tents
If you really are a Tibetan
Listen up!
Don’t corrupt the father tongue by mixing it
Listen up!
Don’t corrupt the father tongue by mixing it

These two good moral customs are the legacy of our forefathers
If you really are a descendant of our forefathers
If you really are a descendant of our forefathers
Listen up!
Don’t neglect these moral customs
Listen up!
Don’t neglect these moral customs

“I Want to go to Lhasa”
Divine rays of light that shine from the sky
The magnificent sound of joy and happiness
In the morning my white cloud extended its wings
At night I crawl out of the universe
This life is like an everlasting ripple on the Yarlung Tsangpo
Warm rays of sunlight emanate from the top of the Potala
Endless grasslands, caring like a mother
The bleating of the lamb is myself

I want to go to Lhasa
Go to Lhasa!
I want to see the radiant snow mountains
The beautiful and pleasant vast grasslands
My heart permeates all the nomad areas

I want to go to Lhasa
Go to Lhasa!
From birth until death, this cycle of samsara is the truth of existence
This black darkness of night has become the norm
I pray to the precious jewel
That dwells in my heart
