Description

Nepathya is one name in Nepali Music – which has gained consistent popularity and social recognition. During the past 25 years of its existence- Nepathya has been the trendsetter. They have been the pioneers to blend folk melodies into youth-friendly pop and rock format. Folk melodies have remained the life force of Nepathya.

Apart from folk, Nepathya’s songs also portray contemporary Nepal – its pain at times of war and distress, and yet the ray of hope an artist sees and imagines of…

Critics address Nepathya as the Most Earthy Nepali Band.

This is the first ever historic event when any Nepali artist performs in New Zealand!

Band – Background Information

Formed in 1990 by Deepak Rana (now a Chopper pilot), Bhim Poon (now settled in Hong Kong) and Amrit Gurung, Nepathya has in these 25 years provided a platform to many musicians.

It has seen 21 new faces come and go, but the name Nepathya and it’s popularity still exists with consistency.

Nepathya has been a platform for talented musicians. As music is yet to become a sustainable form of profession in Nepal, long-term commitments from musicians remain rare.

Amrit Gurung has remained the guardian, leader and currently the lead vocalist of Nepathya.

With 9 albums to its credit, Nepathya from its Chekyo Chekyo days (release early 90s) to Jomsome Bazaarma (release mid 90s) to Resham (release 2001) to Bhedako Oon Jasto (release 2003) has maintained its consistency in the market.

Nepathya’s 7th album was called 'Ghatana … incidents of Nepal'. Ghatana was a musical expression of Nepal as Nepalese lived through 2003-2005 conflict struck Nepal.

8th album (2010) – Mero Desh is a compilation of songs based on Nepathya’s musical expression of current Nepal. Few songs are fresh and newly recorded, few are from it’s back catalogue which Nepathya still thinks is relevant and few have come in re-arranged and re-recorded forms.

Nepathya last album (2010) – Aina Jhyal is a continuity of Nepthya’s folk rock genre. An outcome of Amrit’s travel to the villages and the positive and peaceful direction the nation is heading after conflict and political transition.
