The Mountain Music Project: 
A Musical Odyssey from Appalachia to Himalaya follows the journey of two traditional musicians (Danny Knicely and Tara Linhardt) from the hills of Virginia to the mountains of rural Nepal, where they explore the extraordinary similarities between the Appalachian music that is now known as Bluegrass and Old Time and the Nepali Himalayan folk music and culture, particularly focused on the traditional musicians of the Gandharba caste. The film, shot in both Nepal and Virginia, has great interviews, scenes, and music with influential musicians who have grown up in both of the mountain music cultures and weaves a enlightening and touching story of the evolution and realities of the musics and the people and culture that live it.


The Mountain Music Project will have a showing of the film in the DC area and it will be accompanied by a live concert of Nepali-Appalachian fusion music.
