Echoes in the Valley (EITV) is a not for profit annual music festival initiated in 2017 with a goal to uncover, revive and make relevant Nepal’s intangible heritages and disappearing sounds by showcasing local music, art, and performances of everyday rituals. It transforms small neighbourhoods in Kathmandu valley into grand stages for musical conversations between international and local artists. In addition, the festival offers an array of interactive educational initiatives, music conference, creative workshops, guided neighbourhood walks, and an open museum of communal art and artifacts.

EITV is an initiative by Kanta Dab Dab, in collaboration with Kutumba, Night and Phatcowlee. It has always been a FREE event and we would like to keep it that way. We fundraise for the festival by doing gigs around town, collaborating with musician friends and generous venue partners.
