Electronic music knows no boundaries as Himalayan Dalai Lama clearly shows. The duo's origins are a lot closer than their name suggests. Hailing from Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic, Kryštof Matej and David Novotný are adepts at the downtempo arts of chillwave, ambient, trip-hop and techno. Himalayan Dalai Lama was part of the famous Czech Radio project Audioport and the duo has performed alongside Slow Magic, Kiasmos, Erol Alkan and others at the biggest Czech music festival Colours of Ostrava.
Himalayan Dalai Lama have won the music export project "Czeching" powered by Czech Radio's youth station Radio Wave. In the beginning of the year 2017 they performed at Eurosonic Noorderslag, one of the biggest showcase festivals in the world. During the year 2017 they toured with a well-known Slovak band Fallgrapp. They also performed at Grape Festival and many other festivals in Czech Republic and Slovakia. Himalayan Dalai Lama performed also in London, Berlin, Vienna and toured in Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic. Their first record “Lama” was nominated as the best electronic music record of 2016 by the Czech Academy Of Popular Music.
In late 2018 they released their much anticipated full-length album Orange Coloured Rose Leaves and introduced a brand new live show along with new visuals, based on the iconic sound of Roland Juno 60 which is also one of the rudiments on Orange Coloured Rose Leaves LP.
