Title Review

This is a book on Nepal’s musical heritage with the focus on its musical instruments some of which have gone out of use. It explains that the folk instruments create a wealth of rhythms and melody which are used in songs and dances and religious rituals. They are not merely tools for creating specific sounds but are considered sacred and have caste and other specific associations. The 362 folk musical instruments covered fall under groups of wind instruments, drums, bells, gongs, plucked string instruments, bowed string instruments and the Murchunga, Binayo and others.
