In addition to suffering major aftershocks since then, thousands of people have been made homeless by the disaster.

This fundraising concert, scheduled for June 12, will feature Nepalese masters from Kathmandu, the ‘Nepal Sitars’ with Satendra Bir Singh Tuladhar on Sitar and Nabankur Bhattacharya on Tabla.

It is hosted at the “Centre de Loisirs Am Sand, in Oberanven, Luxembourg, starting with nibbles and a bar from 7pm and music from 8pm.
