ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One evening in a tented camp near the settlement of Khola Kharka, Nepal, we sat together with our guides under canvas while rain and hail blew down and wild winds tore at the tent door. We peered out now and again to see the clouds blowing past outside. Our guides asked if we knew any songs we could sing. I sang, Kunga sang, Rafik read a poem, Dhun danced, Sima laughed and laughed. To end the evening I sang a lullaby I used to sing my baby son to lull him to sleep. He would ask for the same song as he grew older if he was ill or in need of comfort. The gentle melody seemed to rest in the air as we said goodnight, wondering if the weather would clear for our summit climb the next morning. Two weeks after this back in Manchester we heard of the 2015 earthquakes which badly damaged the school we had visited a few days before.
Khola Kharka Lullaby was written with all this in mind. We have been raising money though Rebuilding Schools Nepal funding a safe water supply, stationary for the children and compost toilets. We are still raising money to rebuild the school. We visit again this October to see progress and assess needs. If you would like to support our ongoing work to help rebuild the school please buy this song. All the proceeds will go to supporting the school. Thank you.
