ECHOES IN THE VALLEY MUSIC FESTIVAL
Echoes in the Valley is a music festival that aims to preserve, promote and witness the changes in diverse traditional performing arts from Kathmandu.
It strives to uncover, revive and make relevant Kathmandu’s intangible heritages and disappearing sounds by showcasing local music, art, and performances of everyday rituals. It will transform small neighbourhoods into grand stages for musical conversations between international and local artists.
In addition, the festival will offer an array of interactive educational initiatives, creative workshops, guided neighbourhood walks, and an open museum of communal art and artifacts.
The festival will have 18 different bands with more than 200 international and local artists performing in four locations in and around Ason. In addition, it will host 6 workshops, 2 exhibitions, 2 guided tours and will have various food stalls, and an estimated 30,000 locals are expected to attend.
The first edition of festival is organized by Kanta dAb dAb's social initiative 'Musicians for Musicians' in collaboration with Ason Sewa Samiti, Machhindra Club, Jhi Youth Club and Kantipur Kathmandu Leo Club.
