On March 11th 2005, the WYLN hosted Chinese and Tibetan artists for a peace concert in Dharamsala, India. The event was held at the Tibetan Center for Performing Arts and was filled beyond capacity with people interested in hearing Chinese and Tibetan artists perform together. Due to the over-capacity crowd, television monitors were set up in the entrance to the hall so everyone interested could watch the concert. Chinese artists included the imminent flautist Yimin Mao, while several local Tibetan dance and drama groups performed. Both the Chinese and Tibetan artists stressed how personal, social and artistic relationships can positively effect official relations and the ongoing peace process.
