KATHMANDU: After a short interruption, Paleti has resumed its regular show with the theme ‘Celebrating Women in Nepali Music‘, on Friday.

On the occasion, female pioneer singers were remembered as singer Meena and presenter Aavaas ran the show with enthusiasm at the Nepalaya’s sala, full house arena in Kalikasthan.


The show kicked-off remembering Melwadevi, the first Nepali female singer, through her song ‘Na Gharlai Ghar Kahincha‘, written by martyr Shukraraj Shastri. As the show went on, Aavaas shared his experience with leading female singers of the nation.

He further said, “Meeting Koilidevi was like visiting a representative from another era.” As Tara Devi’s name came into the context, ‘Fulko Thunga Bahera Gayo’ in the words of national poet Madhav Prasad Ghimire was sung to honour her, Aavash shared.

As the show went on, singer Sunita Subba sang ‘Chirbir Garne Chari‘ written by Manjul taking audiences to a different era of Nepali music.

Singer Meena entertained the crowd with her maternal home Manipur’s popular song Nokhidhara and signed off the show with Melwadevi’s song ‘Sawari Mero Railailma’.

Likewise, singers Sunita Subba, Kunti Moktan and Sangeeta Pradhan also performed in the show yesterday. The show will run during the weekends of the last week of every month, Nepalaya said.

Music enthusiasts can book tickets through Paleti’s social media pages and through Nepalaya. Similarly, online ticket can be purchased through, according to the statement.
