Surya Nepal Jazzmandu, formally known as the Surya Nepal International Kathmandu Jazz Festival, will once again bring International and Nepali musicians together in the Nepali capital for its 11th edition of “the biggest jazz party in the Himalayas”.

Since its inception eleven years ago, the festival has grown to become a respected event among music enthusiasts and musicians alike, and an additional attraction for visitors to Nepal. The festival has been instrumental in placing Nepal on the International jazz map and jazz music has now found a place of its own in the heart of the Himalayas.

Over the years, Surya Nepal Jazzmandu has succeeded in not only introducing jazz to Nepal, but also in generating a growing interest for music education and western music traditions. Local musicians who have been exposed to jazz have expanded their creativity, explored new techniques and the freedom of improvisation in playing familiar instruments. The Jazz for the Next Generation competition is now a well established feature of the festival that provides an opportunity for aspiring local young bands to showcase their skills and talent and interact with renowned foreign artists.

The international language of music dismisses narrow socio-cultural divides and cuts across our differences of culture, color, faith, geography to promote peace and compassion in a world in great need of understanding, empathy and tolerance. Surya Nepal Jazzmandu provides an exciting platform for musicians and people of all walks of life to come together through their love of music.

Over the years, the festival has provided free shows for the general public, jazz performances for school students, master classes and workshops by visiting artists for music enthusiasts and students. Over the past eleven years Surya Nepal Jazzmandu has introduced people in Nepal to many great, world-famous jazz artists such as Trilok Gurtu, Louis Banks, Natalie Williams, Ari Hoenig, Tito Puente Jr, Mark Brown Band, and Catia Werneck Quartet to name but a few.

Visiting artists in turn have had the chance to discover and enjoy the rich culture, beauty and diversity of Nepal, to meet and share musical experiences, and jam together with renowned local musicians and other international artists.

The festival presents a unique blend of cultures, musicians and improvisational music to create a magical and unforgettable musical experience in the heart of the Himalayas. Surya Nepal Jazzmandu has successfully brought many reputed musicians from far and wide to the Nepali capital where an ever-growing audience of jazz enthusiasts and music lovers crave quality music. Jazz has permeated cultures all over the world and Surya Nepal Jazzmandu continues to bring musicians from diverse backgrounds to present their unique and refreshing approach to jazz.

This year, the festival features The Claudia Quintet (USA), Mike del Ferro (The Netherlands), Eliane Amherd (Switzerland), Yaite Ramos Quartet (France), 4th Element (India), and from Nepal: Cademza, Gandharva, Joint Family Internationale, the KJC faculty and the Dhime Girls

    chém giórong lòng trầm xuống, hắn ở tại chiến trường cùng quan trường lăn qua lăn lại cả đời người, bây giờ cũng không biết nên làm cái gì bây giờ.

    Mà buổi chiều hôm sau, Mộ Dung ngũ tổ hoàng thất cùng hoàng đế Mộ Dung Trường Bình tự mình đi đến Lệnh Hồ phủ công tước, đi theo còn có xe chở tù, ở bên trong là Đoàn quý phi.

    Lệnh Hồ Vô Địch đang muốn ra ngoài nghênh đón, lúc đó người hoàng thất đã toàn bộ đi vào Lệnh Hồ phủ công tước rồi, năm vị Mộ Dung lão tổ đều đối với Lệnh Hồ Vô Địch khách khách khí khí, sau đó nói chuyện, Lệnh Hồ Vô Địch cũng phải minh bạch hết thảy sự thật, cả hoàng thất chết thảm trọng vô cùng.

    Nhìn thấy Lệnh Hồ Vô Địch đã không có việc gì, Mộ Dung ngũ tổ cũng thở ra một hơi, nếu Lệnh Hồ Vô Địch thật sự xảy ra chuyện gì, Mộ Dung hoàng thất sợ là chạy trời không khỏi nắng.

    Lần này Mộ Dung ngũ tổ tự mình đến tìm Nhạc Thành, vì chính là đến hoà đàm.
