Mountain Music (In Nepal)

Via I came across this music-gathering group working in Nepal: Mountain Music Project. They are working to preserve a style of music from a mountaineer caste in Nepal whose music is strongly reminiscent of Southern Appalachian traditional music and its more modern manifestations in bluegrass. Listening to the fiddle playing and accompanying slightly throaty singer on one of the songs on the site I could have almost sworn it was Southern Appalachian.

Did they use the pentatonic scale?

A friend of mine had a theory that oppressed and downtrodden people (like the Welsh) favoured the pentatonic scale.
