Nepalis Make Music to Cheer the People and Raise Awareness

Watch: Nepalese use music to comfort fellow survivors, call out for help
As the scale of devastation from last week’s earthquake unfolds, people across Nepal are looking out for each other, with many turning to music to help overcome grief and seek help for survivors. Just outside the main gate of the revered Pashupatinath Temple, a group of young musicians who call themselves ‘Hands-on-Hands – In the Name of Pashupatinath’, sing Nepali songs with lyrics that urged people to extend unconditional help and stay strong in their hour of crisis. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake has claimed more than 6,000 lives and affected some eight million people.
