Living My Dream – Jatra Nepal

JATRA NEPAL

Promotes Nepali music and culture abroad

Jatra Nepal is a non-profit formed by a group of young Nepali expats: Shankar Chettri, Pankaj Khadka, Shyam Khadgi, Milan Thapa, Bhim Gurung, Milan Basnet, Sailendra Singh, Sushil Ghimire, Urisha Joshi,Ujjwal Dhaubhadel, Bishal Suwal and Mamta Ale who aspire to engage the growing Nepali community in Boston, Massachusetts and the New England area. While Nepalis have been living in the city and suburbs for decades and Nepali events are frequently organised highlighting cultures and traditions from home, Jatra Nepal believes the community is yet to come together as one, especially the younger generation. They aim to organise events: music, sports, culture and anything related to Nepal to establish a more thriving Nepali community overseas. These music lovers are creating a platform for Nepali artists to contribute to the growth of the music industry and the artistes themselves.
