Singers Pema Trinley, 22, and Chakdor, 32, from Me’urama nomadic village in Ngaba (Chinese: Aba) were first detained in July 2012 days after the release of the album, entitled ‘The Agony of Unhealed Wounds’. News of their sentencing in February has only emerged recently. Their music DVD included songs in praise of the Dalai Lama, exiled head of Kirti monastery Kirti Rinpoche, and Sikyong Lobsang Sangay, the Tibetan political leader in exile. The singers’ families have not been able to see them since they were imprisoned, and their current location is unknown.
A musician called Khenrap and lyricist Nyagdompo who worked on the album have disappeared, according to the Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD, ‘So many myriad hellish sufferings’: Persecution of Tibetan artists).
