Shree Tara

Shree Tara: An all women Nepali folk music ensemble

The popular all women Nepali folk band, Shree Tara, began performing in 2009 as a three member group. Shree Tara has now grown to five musicians.

Sarada Dangol, an original member and lead percussionist of Shree Tara, tells Onward Nepal that the group was inspired by Nepal’s celebrity singing nun Ani Choying Drolma. Their musical journey has not been without challenges. Female musicians are few and far between in the country. In that sense, Shree Tara is a trailblazer.
