"Soname's fascinating autobiography Child In Tibet (Piatkus Books, 2007), has sold over 100,000 copies world wide. This book tells the remarkable story of her triumph over adversity, told against the backdrop of a turbulent and dangerous Tibet. Soname was born in the harsh Tibetan countryside during the Chinese occupation. When she was just sixteen, Soname risked death in a freedom trek across the Himalayas, finally arriving in Dharamsala, home in exile of the Dalai Lama. Soname later managed to reach England, where she met and married an Englishman. Her hidden talent was discovered when she sang a traditional Tibetan song at a wedding reception, unaware that a member of a famous band was a guest. Today, Soname has rapidly progressing career and an international touring schedule. Plateau, was recorded in London and Kolkata and features UK and Indian musicians including tabla maestro Tanmoy Bose. The producer is Dave M. Allen who has worked with The Cure and Depeche Mode. Soname composed all the material and sings in Tibetan throughout, her vocals evocative of the mountains and culture she has left so far behind. Tibet's struggles remain a powerful issue throughout much of the world yet Tibetan culture remains distant and mysterious to most. The emergence of such a forceful, talented and appealing singer as Soname is set to change that."
