Nepal: Saving Indigenous Voices

The project seeks to document the indigenous folklores of Eastern Nepal which is on the verge of extinction. The project will search and document the folklores, meeting with the original artists who are approaching their seventies and eighties and the tradition seems to be extinct after their death. The folklores like Birhain, Chachair, Parati which are sung at a particular time of the day will be recorded in SounCloud and disseminated widely.
