Mohan Prasahad Joshi ネパール古典音楽家オフィシャルサイト
2nd to 16th Aug 2007 - A visit to Japan for performance

This was his first trip to Japan. He enjoyed the Japanese culture and the sea very much. He gave a performance at An Ethnic Moon Concert which was held in Chiba prefecture, Choushi. This was his first concert in Japan. The citizens of Choshi-shi got the chance to listen to Mr. Mohan's music for the first time and got the first taste of Nepalese Classical music. He also enjoyed the sea very much. And since Nepal isn't blessed with seas, the scenery of the sea was an unforgetable experience for Mr. Mohan. He also dropped in at Japanese temple and enjoyed Japanese's old culture.
