PART 8: VISIT TO PRISONERS ASSISTANCE NEPAL (MARCH 2018)

Street to Stage are traditional Gandharba musicians.  They hail from the villages badly affected by the 2015 earthquake that hit Nepal.

The villages of Gorkha, Lanjung, and Tanahun are about 150 kilometers away from Kathmandu and were at the epicentre of the earthquake.  Through their traditional music, they are trying to raise money from the sale of their CDs to help rebuild houses and schools, supply blankets to people still living in tents, and provide educational materials and training.

From 6pm til 10pm, they play at Hotel Manang.  Many thanks for the CD!  But daytime, they walk the streets of Thamel Kathmandu to play their music.  Happy to have bumped into them one morning!
