"[Nawang] Khechog is one of the most interesting of contemporary Tibetan musicians not only because his work is created on the cultural & spiritual structures derived from his own traditions, but also because it is genuinely innovative. These innovations have substance and, to use a favorite Tibetan diorism, Khung-lung, meaning that they have definite sources as well as continuing traditions; such to a Tibetan way of thinking, being fundamental requirements."
"Tibetan Bulletin" ..The Official Journal of the Tibetan Administration

"Nawang's talent is extremely rare in that his compositions are derived from his meditative practice. This approach is unique to Tibetan poetry, song and music where there is an ancient tradition of spontaneous expression based on one's mind training and realization. Because of this background, he is more than just a "folk" musician."
Allen Ginsberg, Poet

"With all the American star power on the Carnegie Hall Stage, it was strange that a pair of Tibetan instrumentalists would play the evening's show stopper... a song titled "Celebration" that sounded like the end of the world. The fiery drumming & otherworldly horn blast from the odd folk instruments were incredible feats that moved the very proper tux 'n' gown crowd."
New York Post
