The musical articulations of two contemporary rock bands in Lhasa reveal rich and complex narratives of modernity poised to reinvigorate Tibet's besieged cultural identity. Language domination in today's China is not only an ongoing conscious effort, but potentially and increasingly a reiterated "matrix" of norms shaping and constraining people's identity and voices. Modern musical narratives assert agency by presenting a coherent vision for modernity that engages the master narrative but is resonant with ambivalent emotion, allegiance and social critique. Engagement with the master narrative is partly a strategy to ensure acceptance by state censors, but partly it is the product of unconscious linguistic domination. The ambivalent elements indicate the musicians' attempt to engage with modernity on their own terms and to assert control over the dimensions of their identity, investing "Tibetanness" with a fuller range of meanings and a sense of dignity lacking in the master narrative
