About Us

Drum Jatra, the Kathmandu Percussion Festival celebrates the joys of percussion sounds from numerous cultural backgrounds.

With the slogan of “Rhythms of Unity and Diversity,” the six-day festival will feature a wide spectrum of percussion instruments performed by Nepal’s master drummers and percussionists in venues around the Kathmandu Valley. Under the Artistic Direction of Navin Chettri, the festival is put together by the team at The Music Room.

One of the major goals of the festival is music education hence the first three days of the festival will be solely focused on offering masterclasses and workshops by a variety of drummers in various percussion instruments and styles.

The evening concerts will feature a variety of themes in various venues around the Kathmandu Valley featuring ensembles such as The Snare Drum Quartet, Western Percussion Ensemble, Garbage Drummers, Brazilian Samba Drumming, African Drumming sounds to our own Madal Tarang performance, Tabla Ensemble to the enchanting sounds of the singing bowls.

A special concert called Generation Next Drummers will be held just for our young students from around the valley to inspire and share with them the joys of percussion music.
