Curtains fall on Namchi Mahotsav

NAMCHI, November 5: Curtains fell on the three days long Namchi Mahotsav today, which showcased ethnic cultural extravagance.

Tourists, both local and foreign entertained themselves to the tunes of Lok Dohori while surfing through the traditional stalls, selling ethnic cuisines and locally made liquor like Chhang.

At the same time, with the local artisans selling their wares, taxi drivers getting enough people to ferry around and hotels with good occupancy, the festival turned out to be economically and socially advantageous.

Evening was fun as well, what with presentation of different kinds like ‘Lok Dohori’ by artists from Nepal, musical presentation by the instrumental band ‘Kutumba’ of Nepal, presentation by different dance troops of Nachyo Babari, dance by local talents and exclusive musical night by guest artists from Kathmandu, namely Sishir Yogi, Juno Rizal along with local talent like Anita Moktan.

The last day of the Namchi Mahotsav 2009 also saw the presentation by Taal Music and Dance Academy Namchi along with performance of other local talents.
