Pratigya, Devi, Manu and Asha of the Tintale Village Women’s Alliance traveled the rigorous 15-hour journey from Tintale Village to Kathmandu this past summer. They recorded a number of spirited folk melodies in the studio– the first time any of them have ever seen a a professional recording space, and the first time two of the members had ever leave the village! The sessions were fun and the women were delighted to hear themselves on a recording for the first time. We are grateful for Devi coming all that way to share her critical mission with us.
