Fundraising for Nepal Earthquake Relief

Having lived and studied many years in the ancient city of Bhaktapur, Nepal, I am still deeply shaken by the suffering and aftermath caused by the massive 7.8 earthquake of April 25, 2015 to this beautiful place and its people.

One year after the devastating earthquake, many people are still living in temporary shelters and have no acces to medicine, clean water and enough food.

I therefore wish to dedicate this album to all Nepali earthquake victims. 100% of the income generated from this album will be donated and forwarded personally by myself, on site, to people in need.

Bhakapur is famous not only as a UNESCO protected world heritage site, but also for its vibrant traditional music culture, especially their various Newari drums and other instruments, whose main purpose has always been to establish a connection between humans and the Divine.

Still, these recordings are not meant to represent the local music of Bhaktapur - they are my own creations, woven from the endless sea of sounds that this rich and ancient culture has to offer.

All tracks recorded and arranged by Marc Fischer between 1999 and 2015.
Special thanks to Bishnu Bahadur Manandhar for introducing me to the Newari drums, and for playing most of them here himself.

Mastered by Eric van Wonterghem at Prodam, Berlin
