VCCA Fellow Andrea Clearfield traveled to Nepal last August as part of a collaborative project to research and make field recordings of the indigenous music in the remote Himalayan kingdom of Lo Monthang in Mustang, trekking mostly on horseback during the two-week trip.
Enthralled by the experience, Andrea committed herself to assisting the people of Mustang, and has organized a benefit concert in her Philadelphia home on March 1, raising money for Lo Kunpen, a school and clinic of Tibetan medicine. The evening will feature a preview of LUNG-TA, The Wind-Horse, Andrea’s artistic collaboration combining music, dance, and visual art inspired by her trip, plus a silent auction of Tibetan art. Please email Andrea for more information.
