KATHMANDU: Nepal's popular band Nepathya captivated the audience with their folk-rock music at the historic venue The Bomb Factory in Dallas, USA, on Saturday.

As many as 2,500 people had thronged the venue to witness Nepathya's maiden performance in Dallas yesterday.

The Band's lead singer Amrit Gurung said, "It is always humbling to be standing on a stage where Robert Plant and Don Henley had stood and performed," adding, "I grew up listening to them and remain inspired by the legends."

Nepathya started the two-hour show with 'Kuroop Anuhar' and went on to enthral the audience with their evergreen classics including Bhedako Oon, Resham, Taalko Paani, Joga le Huncha Bheta before adding patriotism in the air with Hami Nepali, Gaun Gaun Bata Utha and Jangi Nishan along with other several new releases.

As the show went on, Gurung shared his travel journey and enticed the audience to visit the villages of Nepal.

Earlier, the venue was acquired by Henry Ford in 1914 for his automobile assembly plant before converting it into a bomb producing factory at the turn of World War II.

The venue was refurbished as a music venue in 1993 and has hosted legendary musical figures like Black Sabbath, Korn, Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Don Henley of the Eagles.

After the concert in Dallas, the band will travel to Boston for their next and final performance on June 24 at the Royale Boston Hall.
