Drum Jatra, the Kathmandu Percussion Festival celebrates the joys of percussion sounds from cultures around the world! With the slogan of “Rhythms of Unity in Diversity,” the seven-day festival will feature a wide spectrum of percussion instruments performed by Nepal’s top drummers and international visiting artists in venues around the Kathmandu Valley.

Music education is one of the key goals of the festival hence the first three days of the event will offer masterclasses and workshops by a variety of drummers in numerous percussion instruments and styles. Under the artistic direction of Navin Chettri and the producers of Jazzmandu, the festival is put together by the team at The Music Room.
