One of the most unique and eclectic bands from Kathmandu, Nepal, Cadenza Collective led by drummer and composer Navin Chettri seamlessly blends Jazz, Afro-funk, and Nepali folk into an irresistible sound for your ears and booty.
From their humble beginnings in 1998, Cadenza was one of the first bands to experiment with jazz in the Kathmandu Valley, a city dominated by bands playing rock and pop covers. Cadenza broke the mold and has evolved into a mature and experienced collective of musicians and music educators. Their music has pumped vitality into the improvised music scene in Nepal and beyond through regular performances with both classical and western musicians.
