Echoes in the Valley (EITV)
For the past five years, we have been involved in establishing a sustainable blueprint for the festival dedicated to folk, traditional and indigenous Nepali music. From EITV’s inception to its current iteration, we have taken care of every aspect of the festival such as branding, conceptualizing themes for each edition; writing proposals and reports for national and international funding agencies; creating comprehensive annual budgets; organizing and delegating teams; contacting artists, coordinating with local governments and community bodies; scouting venues; promoting via social media, website, press; and ensuring the overall smooth operation of the festival.
Designed a A 10-day-long artist residency for two Kathmandu-based musicians (Simma Rai and Heyshe Dolma Sherpa) and a cinematographer (Shristi Magar) from different backgrounds to travel to Lumbini province to compose an original song in collaboration with the artists there. The aim was to create a melange of sounds across different places, cultures, ages, ethnicities, languages and genres within Nepal. They interacted with local artists in Bardia, Nirmala Tharu and Basanti Chaudhari, and created an original piece that was showcased as the closing act for the WOW festival. The music video will be released soon.
Nepal Music Archive (NMA)
In 2021, we founded Nepal’s first digital archive that documents music-related research papers and catalogues; and digitises analog musical content. NMA builds a musical consortium of music-related resources by connecting to various libraries (personal and public), universities, archives and institutions; make the portal accessible to not only Nepali students, musicians and music enthusiasts, but also to a global audience.
Women of the World Festival (WOW) 2022
Organized by the British Council Nepal in Lumbini, we were in charge of all six art installations at the venue. We worked in consultation with the British Council’s curator, Beth Troakes, who was based in London, and all the six Nepali artists and organizations who were showcasing during a two-day long festival. We used the best possible materials that were locally available without compromising the quality of the design and aesthetics of the exhibition.

This festival celebrates Bungamati, a Newari town with its own unique history, festivals, culture, rituals, art and crafts. In the 2015 earthquake, Bungamati’s core, the Machhendranath temple collapsed, along with several other monuments and old houses. With it, once a bustling heritage settlement's local economy came crashing. The pandemic brought in more setbacks. Visitors dwindled. Spirits dampened. Many craftsmen went out of business and opted for other professions. The town grew quieter and the locals feared that people had forgotten Bungamati, its beauty and its charm. Bunga Mahotsav aims to relaunch Bungamati as a destination for heritage tourism with offerings palatable to people from all walks of life.
