Nepalese Folk Band
The Habibi Project Chapter I
Namlo, led by the dynamic and versatile Ganga Thapa, have performed at many prestigious Events including Himalayan Festival, South Kerala Festival (South Bank London), Rabindranath Tagore’s 150th Anniversary`(Winsor), Nepalese Music Festival (Woolwich), Osho Lila Festival (Dorset), the BT River Music festival with Arun Ghosh, one of the biggest music festivals in Europe, represented from Nepal for Olympic and London Jazz Festival at Albany Theatre.
Namlo are currently writing and recording original material for their premier Nepalese fusion project which is a “soaking up” of the various influences of collaborations with other musicians. You can hear musical strands from Nepal, Mali, India, and South America.
Ganga’s philosophy about music is based on simple premise – that creativity in music requires discipline, attentive listening, an open unbiased approach, embracing new ideas and the ability to spiritually feel resonance in music. Persistence is the key as this eventually adds credibility to one’s musical character.
