To Nepal with Love: Rubin Museum Spiral Music

Words cannot express the gratitude to everyone who participated in the event yesterday evening. To Tsechu Dolma fresh off the plane numbed with jet lag telling us what she saw on the ground in Nepal the past couple weeks, To Tenzin Dickie, Muna Gurung, and Sonam Tsomo for sharing their beautiful and moving poetry and words, to Nacho Arimany for opening the space on solo percussion with a prayer to the Himalaya, and to Camila Celin for joining him later on Indian sarod, to Raju Lama for sharing his voice filling the whole museum, to Prajwal Bajracharya for accompanying him on guitar, to Sonam Rinzin for doing a live drawing throughout the whole evening of words and music, a beautiful pencil drawing of Buddha and temples of Nepal and later stepping away from the canvas to sing with Vishnu Gurung, Rajesh Khadigi, and Nima Sherpa, who closed the evening with singing a final song for Nepal. Thank you to all of you for sharing your stories, memories, worries, and hopes for the future. Thank you to Tara Lobsang for filming, and to Sherry Katapodes for shooting pictures. Thank you to Rubin Museum for offering this opportunity to curate an evening of Spiral Music, and thank you to everyone who attended to listen and share in the evening. So much love to you all.
