A beautiful Thami village located in Nepal Himalaya near Tibet was razed by the devastating earthquake of 2015. A local slate mine, the inhabitants’ primary source of income, disappeared along with it. The hopeless villagers seemed to lose their vitality, but then Kanchi, a 14-year-old village “diva” became a generator of “Hope for the Future.” Her new Thami songs using traditional melodies have brought all the villagers together for reconstruction and they plan to present her song to the “god of the mine” for luck when it re-opens.
