Kutumba is a folk instrumental ensemble committed to the research, preservation and celebration of the diversity that exists in indigenous Nepali music. Kutumba firmly believes that the richness in Nepali music is directly significant of the rich diversity that exists in the Nepali people. As we become more aware of the multiculturalism in Nepali society, be it in Kathmandu or other parts of the country, political, social and developmental attention is trained on recognizing differences and ensuring rights for our diverse groups of people. Kutumba sees the possibility of finding respect by promoting our multiculturalism through the medium of our indigenous music art forms as apposed to seeing it as a threat that will divide us as a people.
