Himavat Dana

by Various Artists (Sangoma) (Nepal Benefit compilation)

Himavat Dana

We at Sangoma Records have gathered some of our artists and friends to show our solidarity with the people of Nepal and other parts of the Himalaya region who are in need of help after the series of natural disasters it had to face recently. Now the earth is still trembling with aftershocks and in the next weeks monsoon will bring heavy rainfalls and landslides which means the tragedy is far from over. “Himavan” stands for the personification of the Himalaya as a living entity and “dāna” is the philosophic principle of giving aid to the needy not only as a spiritual concept but also for humanity by cultivating generosity.

Some of us witnessed the April earthquake and we want to use our available resources and tools to raise some money for projects, which offer un-bureaucratic and direct help and action. Our aim is not to guild trip anyone but to share our experiences and love for this stunning place that inspired and welcomed many of us since the 1960s. More information you will find in the booklet attached to this release.

Sangoma Records would like to thank everybody who contributed and supported this release and those who stand with Nepal in times like this.
