KATHMANDU: After the arrival of Danish band Michael Learns to Rock (MLTR) on November 16, the thermometer of excitement and eagerness for MLTR Live in Concert that is to be held on November 19, Tundikhel has definitely risen. With the awaited day very near, who is not excited? Everyone is, as Nepali music lovers are getting a wonderful opportunity to listen to their songs live.
“It is going to be interesting,” was what Kare Wanscher had to say about their first concert in Nepal at the press meet held on November 17 at Hotel Rasisson. Vocalist and keyboardist Jascha Richter and guitarist Mikkel Lentz were also present at the meet.
Putting forward his thoughts, Richter added, “It is exciting for us to be here in Nepal.” As per him, the band will be performing new and old songs.
It might be their first visit to Nepal but not in Asia. After giving what their fans wanted to hear during numerous concerts in many Asian countries, the band feels “privileged and honoured” to receive an invitation from Nepal during the Nepal Tourism Year.
The band members were asked if they have heard any Nepali music to which Lentz answered, “No, we really haven’t heard Nepali music. We travel all the time and get to listen to different kinds of music but not Nepali.”
Nevertheless, the band is sure to pour in lots of musical elements of fun and thrill from their repertoire of old and new songs. And fun and relaxation is what the band wants the Nepali audience to enjoy on the day of concert. “We would like people to have fun. We also like them to be happy and loud,” stated Wanscher. As the last message to people, he also added, “Feel free to sing along and let yourself loose. Don’t hold yourself back.”
The MLTR Live in Concert is being organised by ODC Network and Engage Entertainment Solutions and the organisers were present in the press meet as well. The Himalayan Times is the official print media of the event. — HNS
