Held annually in Bhutan, Mountain Echoes is a small festival that celebrates literature, art, music and culture. The three day festival will take place in Thimphu from May 22 to 24 and is an initiative of the India-Bhutan foundation in association with Siyahi, a leading literary agency in India.
Bringing together writers, scholars, photographers, poets, musicians, and artists (to name a few), this festival will include performances from Bhutanese bands, film shows and exhibitions on Bhutanese textiles, and contemporary Bhutanese art.
“In our busy world, Bhutan stands out. It believes in happiness over wealth, nature over industry. It moves forward without forgetting where it came from. The Bhutanese way of life has greatly influenced our festival. We too believe that the beautiful things in life deserve to be preserved and Mountain Echoes is our small step in that direction.” – Indiegogo, Mountain Echoes Festival 2014
