Lolay recitation by school students
About 25 students from schools across Thimphu visited DGPC corporate office on January 4, 2019 and recited lolay to mark nyilo.
Coinciding with annual harvest period in western Bhutan, nyilo is the winter solstice in Bhutanese lunar calendar and marks the return of longer days. The lolay recitation of traditional song is considered as tendrel gi phue (offerings) to the children who go around announcing prospects and wishes for a good year.
The event was organised by the Folk Heritage Museum together with Tarayana Foundation, Thimphu.
