Initially, my designer friend and I wanted to do an online zine called "NABE" (slang for "neighborhood") but we didn't really do it. At the same time, out of frustration with the abundance of night clubs playing progressive psychedelic trance in Kathmandu (probably leftover from the European hippies who just got back from Goa), I co-created a series of events called "NABE Radio".
Basically it was just a platform for me to collaborate with other artists (musicians, poets, illustrators) where we performed original songs and/or reworked existing material by others. Also, to share music that I enjoy dancing to with other like-minded individuals.
At first, it was really tough to introduce new type of electronic music in Kathmandu but somehow we managed to get a small but strong following. Many thanks to friends and supporters that I met through the shows, the local and visiting foreign artists that I collaborated with and of course, Michael of Places Restaurant & Bar for taking the risk and decided to be different than other venues in the city. Unfortunately the series have to come to its end as I have to leave Nepal and head back to my country.
