Nepathya begins 25th year from home city Pokhara

KATHMANDU: The folk-rock band Nepathya has entertained hundreds of music lovers at the Pokhara Stadium in the lake city in Kaski district on Saturday.

The band stepped into its 25th year on April 1 and the event in Pokhara yesterday was its first performance marking the silver jubilee.

Nepathya kicked off the show by singing its fresh song 'Kuroop Anuhar Ho', the song written by Sarubhakta and composed by Bikram Gurung.

The band also rocked the stage by performing its two-decade old popular songs like 'Mardi Khola Ghumdai Aaye' and 'Jomsomey Bazar'.

As the songs were related to Pokhara, the audience shared that they were fully entertained.

"Nepathya is the pride of our Pokhara," said an audience member.

Besides this, Nepathya's signature songs like 'Taal Ko Pani' and 'Resham' also became a part of the show.

The live concert yesterday is also the continuation of 2015’s ‘Coca-Cola Pheri Uthne Chha Nepal’ campaign that was launched in August 2015 to encourage people to come forward in rebuilding the nation after the devastating earthquake.

The proceeds from the evening would go towards providing education for underprivileged students and infrastructure development of schools in Kaski and Salyan.

The band was initiated by three boys from Pokhara 25 years ago and more than 20 musicians have contributed to the journey so far.
