A mere five kilometers south-west of Kathmandu, on top of a hill, is the small ancient town of Kirtipur, a center of Newari culture. The Newa people are the indigenous people of Nepal's Kathmandu Valley.
I had the good fortune earlier this year to visit the town during its Newa Culture Food Festival. The festival included beautiful music played on a range of instruments.
