From the Gandharba musical tradition of Nepal, virtuoso Shyam Nepali brings the sounds of the Sarangi to Vermont and the world. He expands on the work of his Grandfather, Magar Gaine, and his father, Ram Sharan Nepali, legendary Sarangi players, with technical and artistic innovation.

‘Mero Sarangi’, Shyam’s newest and first entirely self-produced album, is a tribute to the ancient roots of the Nepali Gandharva Sarangi Tradition in Nepal, as well as a guidepost for anchoring the tradition towards the future for future generations. This recording of original compositions and heritage songs includes songs composed by his Grandfather, popular Nepali composer L.P. Joshi, and a previously undiscovered song which Shyam found in the Archives of Traditional Music at Indiana University.
