Folk Lok

The Folk Lok project will support Tahnani Dāpha Khalah, a traditional musical group in Kirtipur, in document, record and recreate their tranditional music practices. A music education curriculum will be built based on their traditional practices. 

What we do

Learning Outcomes

This project builds educational workshop modules designed to create an appreciation for the traditional arts among the younger generations. It uses performance arts as a means to build stronger community organizations.
