Kalirati Productions is proud to present Only Ghosts on February 25. There are over twenty percussion instruments in this original retelling of Carrie-Ann Tkaczyk's novel, Only Ghosts, set during the democratic revolution in Nepal.

In the sultry jungles of Nepal, modern and ancient desires beat. When a stranger comes to Batuwaa, the mystic and the modern clash. Voices, percussion music, and story meld into the pulse of a mysterious pool, Bhoot Pool: the place the villagers of Batuwaa fear; the place the forbidden are free to love. Of course, all freedom has its cost. An international cast performs over twenty percussion instruments including Nepal's traditional drum, the madal. All original story and music.

This show features four well-known musicians, Bruce Bartlett, Charlie Kersch, Ragon Linde, and Prasanna Dhoj Pradhan. As well as performers, poets and singers A. Molotkov and Carrie-Ann Tkaczyk. Their bios can be found on the performance website.

Masks for the production were made by students at the Nepali school, Educational Environment Boarding School. Proceeds will benefit this school.

    i have never seen a musical story telling so I wonder how that would be… Plus its a story abt nepal, which adds to my curiosity.

    I would love to attend this performance. As a journalist and photojournalist for the Asian Culture I have watche performances and music from many countries. I would love to write an article about this event. Music story telling can be excite the senses, stir the imagination, and move the soul.

    I love story’s telling since i was a child, opera,plays, classical music, and story’s of ancient history’s of other cultures it is very interesting to me. I haven’t been in to many shows so far because i just started to attend to these events just recently but would love to go to more and often. This would be my 3rd time live. I finally have time for myself to want to enjoy what i love. This story sound really good and educational, i am very interested to go.

    I would love to win tickets to the 7pm show because so many of my interests are converging here: Asian culture and history, masks, percussion, free stuff – and it’s maybe a 20 min. walk from my apt. Neat!
