Nepathya performs to a full house in Sydney

KATHMANDU: After successfully performing in Brisbane, Darwin, Adelaide and Hobart, Nepal's famous folk-rock band, Nepathya, captivated the full-house audience at Big Top Auditorium in Luna Park of Sydney, Australia, on Saturday.

Performing for the fifth time in Sydney, Nepathya, entertained the audience with their mix of old and new songs with a great effect of the latest technology at the sold-out auditorium this weekend.

With this show, Sydney hosted Nepathya's concert for the record fifth time. Nepathya has already performed more than five times in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Butwal, Chitwan, Hetauda and Dhangadhi within Nepal.

As the show went on, band's lead singer and social activist Amrit Gurung said, "I still remember our first concert ten years ago as there were fewer Nepalis living in Sydney. However, during the last decade, Nepali diaspora has migrated looking for opportunities all over the globe."

"Nepal would be a prosperous nation if it could do enough to stop the flow of brain-drain in the near future," Amrit Gurung added.

"I see future in youths like you, who have gained knowledge, skills and experience in a foreign land, to transform the course of the nation like ours. Although our predecessors failed to create opportunities for us, we should be able for the next generation in Nepal, "Amrit Gurung shared.

As usual, Gurung was supported by Dhurba Lama on drums, Suraj Thapa on keyboards, Subin Shakya on bass guitar, Niraj Gurung on guitars and Shanti Raymajhi on madal.

After the Sydney show, Nepathya's concert entourage will head to final stop-over in Melbourne to perform on December 23, the band said.

Nepathaya is currently touring Australia for the fifth time with new music series.
