KATHMANDU: The Paleti series is one stage where veteran Nepali musicians and their music have come alive. Though a small event, it has featured many yesteryears’ artistes and promoted audhunik music. However, it had been stopped for technical reasons. Nevertheless, it is back and is set to resume from July 27 after five months of hiatus.
“It has become a campaign and a movement for contemporary music,” shares Arpan Sharma, Director of nepa~laya, about Paleti.
Since 2005, nepa~laya has been organising Paleti reintroducing yesteryears’ artistes. It had started as a micro event series at Nepathya’s rehearsal studio later becoming a promoter of Nepali contemporary music which archives the audio visuals of the performing artistes. This is what Paleti is all about.
July 27 will be a recapping of the last seven years and more than 40 shows of Paleti. At the new beginning, Paleti singers Suraj and Meena will be presenting the best Paleti songs while Aavaas will be sharing his experiences working with senior artistes as well as Paleti’s inception and his journey with it. As per Sharma, Paleti series will continue as a regular event at nepa~laya ‘r’ sala every last Friday of the English month with “different revered artistes”.
