Symposium on Nepal’s musical heritage
As a concluding event on the occasion of the International Folk Music Film Festival in Kathmandu, Nepal (November 25-28, 2011), UNESCO is organizing a symposium on November 28, in Lalitpur, with the participation of international senior ethnomusicologists and other experts.
The symposium aims at discussing the existing challenges and future of documenting (…) Nepal’s rich musical heritage.1
The Folk Music Film Festival in itself (a three-day event on the theme “Music for life, music for survival”) is dedicated to Arnold A. Bake, Carol Tingey, and Mireille Helffer, three European researchers who have studied and documented aspects of Nepalese, Himalayan and Tibetan music.
