Manose 2000 in Mount Shasta


Born to a family of traders and shopkeepers, Nepali native Manose found himself drawn to the bamboo flute as a young boy. His fascination with the rich sound of this instrument quickly developed into true devotion; by the age of seventeen he was already deep into the demanding study of classical South Asian music and had begun to take on students of his own. He is considered one of the most noteworthy new faces on the world music scene, and his talent as a solo performer, as well as his versatility in a variety of genres, has carried him through Asia, Europe, and the United States.

Manose is widely recognized as the Nepal's premiere flautist, is the recipient of national awards including instrumentalist of the year, and appears regularly on Nepali T.V. and radio. He has been a music teacher for the University of Wisconsin's College Year in Nepal program, and Naropa Institute's Nepal program since 1995. He has also tought at the Lark in the Morning music camp in Mendocino for many years.
