The International Folk Festival that takes place every two years is all set to kick off from March 1. Like always, this year’s event which happens to be the ninth edition of this festival is being organised by the Everest Nepal Cultural group.
Dawned from 2002, this festival has already hosted 3500 performers from 35 countries. In the event, you can see each participating group showcasing folk songs and dances that best represent their home cultures. This year’s festival will feature over 300 performers from Estonia, Greece, Indonesia, Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Italy, Israel, and of course, Nepal.
Established over two decades ago, the Everest Nepal Cultural Group works to promote and preserve Nepal’s diverse cultural heritage by organising cultural events and discussion groups that provide a platform for performers and experts representing disparate traditions from Nepal and abroad, to convene, share and relate.
So get hyped up for this event. It’s gonna conclude on March 10.
