We cordially invite you to attend the 2013 Sarangi Master Class, a celebration of Nepali folk music and traditional culture.
DATE: Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd February, 11AM – 4PM
LOCATION: Nepal Music Museum, Tripurashwor, Kathmandu (see map)
This annual event will feature rare musical performances, storytelling, and lessons from the following living legends of Nepali folk music:
Tirtha Bahadur Gandharba of Tanahun
Hum Bahadur “Honi Maya” Gandharba of Palpa
Janga Bahadur. Gandharba of Dang
Padam Gandharba of Gorkha
