Sarangi Day 2010September 24th, 2010
Come one, Come all! Friends in Kathmandu, we welcome you to join us for a full day of traditional Nepali folk music, October 29th @ Comfort Zone in Thamel, Kathmandu.
This year, Sarangi Day will feature over 8 hours of live music from the unsung legends of Nepali folk music, hailing from Gorkha, Lamjung, Hyangja, Palpa, Pokhara, and Kathmandu. It all takes place in the relaxing rooftop environs of Comfort Zone, just north of 7 corners in Thamel atop the Bank of Kathmandu Building. If you’ve not yet seen our film we’ll be screening it at 7:30 PM.
Admission is absolutely free of charge, with exceptional food and drink available for purchase from the restaurant and bar.
Here’s the map to Comfort Zone in Thamel:
We hope you’ll join us for this once-a-year celebration of Nepali music, food & film!

In the week leading up to Sarangi Day, we’ll also be hosting master classes from 3 elder Gandharba musicians for young sarangi players, offered free of charge to Nepalis. Contact Kedar for details: (+977) 984-124-9004.
On the same day (October 29th), back in Erwin, Tennesee, you can catch the MMP film at the Southern Appalachian Film Festival, 2:20 PM at the Kinsport Public Library.

@ Tshering – we'll know the entrance fee in a couple of days…still a few more things to calculate. We're also looking for volunteers, who will get in free. Tell your friends…

Thanks for an awe-inspiring project and an awesome website.
This might be a random question but I’m going to be traveling to Nepal (Kathmandu and the Anapura Circuit) this March and am looking for a good place to buy a sarangi. Not too bothered about getting the best deal – I’m more interested that my money goes to the right place, if that makes any sense. Do you have any shops, areas or individuals you recommend?
