Description

Nepalese musician and composer Manose Singh is collaborating with Asian Refugees United’s Bhutanese refugee performance collective, The Storytellers, to create an evening-length work, Mero Yatra, Mero Geet (My Journey, My Song), featuring traditional and new Nepali music staged with song and spoken word narrative. Themes of the work will come from personal stories of The Storytellers, who are members of the Lhotshampa ethnic minority group, which lived in Bhutan for generations but was exiled to Nepal and later to the United States after Bhutan’s king declared the 1989 “One Nation, One People” policy.
