KATHMANDU:  Nepal’s folk rock band Nepathya performed at the O2 Academy Brixton in London on Saturday evening.

More than 4000 people had thronged the venue to witness the popular Nepali band’s show. As front man Amrit Gurung sang, the audience, majority of them the members of Nepali Diaspora, sang with him.

The show started with a new number from Nepathya’s yet to be released 10th album – Kuroop anuhaar ho... yahan kohi saathi chhaina...

Tuned by Vikram Gurung and written by Sarubkhata, Nepathya presented this in a psychedelic theme.

“It is fun to see people love our music,” Gurung said, “With every show, we get motivated to move on to the next one”

Along with other hit numbers, Nepathya presented four new songs, including Nainaataala, Koshi ko Paani and Raama Raama, from the album.

Dedicating the song Nainaataala, which  portrays the feelings of a young soldier and his attraction towards a beautiful lady, to the Lahure community and the 200 years celebration of the UK-Nepal relationship.

“Britain and Nepal have been friends for a long time. I congratulate people of the two countries on this occasion,” Gurung said as he performed the song.

Gurung further urged the Nepali community to get united and help rebuild Nepal from wherever they are.

The show was organized and coordinated by UK based Elyte Events. “It is overwhelming to see how people respond to Nepathya. We do events in the UK regularly but the response we got to this show is beyond comparison to others,” said Bijay Gurung of the organising team.
