To Ngawang and Tenzin Samphel, success is making a living through electronic dance music. Their future looks bright but uncertain.
The sons of Tibetan immigrant parents, these two aspiring electronic dance music producers dream of touring the world and performing for the masses. Living at home with their parents, they draw strength from their Buddhist faith and their Tibetan culture while also embracing a very Americanized lifestyle. They are optimistic about their prospects for musical success but still must balance pursuing their dreams with their regular 9 to 5 jobs.
“My brother and I, we make electronic music. And now, you know, we’ve arrived at this point where we’re seriously thinking about turning that into a full-blown career,” Tenzin said.
For Ngawang and Tenzin Samphel, if it wasn’t for the support and sacrifices of their parents, they wouldn’t have the freedom to pursue the musical dreams.
