We invite our friends in Nepal to join us for Sarangi Day 2009, a celebration of traditional music in Nepal. The Nepali program runs from 2-6 PM, October 9th at the Nepal Tourism Board’s Auditorium Hall, Bhrikutimandap Marg, just east of Ratna Park in Kathmandu.
This year’s event will showcase several Gandharba musicians from all over Nepal, as well as a Nepali-Language screening of the Mountain Music Project film (at 4PM).
At 7 PM, we’ll move the show to the Northfield Cafe in Thamel, with several performances for our tourist friends. Admission to both events is free and open to the public.
Sarangi Day 2009 will feature the traditional musical stylings of Gopilal Gandhari, Hum Bahadur, Junga Bahadur, Akal, Lal Bahadur, and Bartha Gandharba, Shyam Nepali, the Samundra band, a dohori group, and several performances from the Gandharba Cultural & Arts Organization, our brothers in cultural preservation here in Nepal.
Hope to see you there!
