I am happy to have been involved in some small efforts to help Nepal.

Linda Fujikawa and her service learning class organized a great fundraiser, with donations through the Society of Nepalese in Hawaii to Real Medicine Foundation and America Nepal Medical Foundation.

Music and the Nepal Earthquake

“When we see and hear Nepali cultural sounds and images, it creates a mood for the victims to be more positive and to unite. Folk music and arts are the medium that creates a feeling of humanity. It totally ignores differences like ethnicity and political parties.”

This is what I said, quoted on CNN in the article “In Nepal, lift spirits through music“.

There is much more to be done, and I hope music and musicians can help all come together and contribute to rebuilding Nepal.
