Tibetan Singer Tashi Dhondup Arrested over "Subversive songs"
Thursday, 3 December Chinese authorities arrested Tashi, accusing him of composing 'subversive' songs. Tashi Dondrup was detained while in hiding in the western city of Xining, capital of Qinghai province, where he had taken refuge after the authorities banned his music. He released an album titled Torture without Trace last month. The album comprises 13 songs expressing nostalgia for the exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama and remembering the crackdown that followed an anti-Chinese unrest across Tibet in March last year. The 5,000 CDs sold out quickly among Tibetans in the Amdo region of eastern Tibet, where Tashi Dondrup is a local star.
Chinese authorities at once banned the album. Officials in central Henan province, where he is a member of the Henan Mongolian Autonomous Region Arts Troupe, issued a warrant for his arrest.

Update on Tibetan Singer Tashi Dondrup:
According to an article published today in The Times newspaper: "Chinese authorities have arrested a popular young Tibetan singer, accusing him of composing subversive songs. Tashi Dondrup was detained yesterday afternoon while in hiding in the western city of Xining, capital of Qinghai province, where he had taken refuge after the authorities banned his music."
The Times article was also posted on Woeser's blog today with Woeser writing the same information in Chinese and also posting a link to Tashi Dondrup's music videos on a Chinese YouTube type website called Tudou:http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/5T...
In February this year, High Peaks Pure Earth translated a blogpost by Jamyang Kyi about Tashi Dhondrup that she had written on February 11 in which she recounted hearing that a singer named Tashi Dondrup had been arrested. However, the blogpost created confusion as bloggers left comments saying that Tashi Dondrup had been seen in Xining.
Today's Times article clears up the confusion.
