Nepathya, Nepal’s leading rock band, is currently on a tour to Australia and New Zealand as part of its 25th year celebrations. On Saturday, the band performed at the Big Top auditorium in Sydney’s Luna Park and mesmerized over 3000 music lovers who had gathered to witness their electrifying performance.
Amrit Gurung, Nepathya’s lead performer, was accompanied by Suraj Thapa on the keyboard, Dhruba Lama on the drums, Subin Shakya on the bass guitar, Niraj Gurung on the lead guitar and Shanti Rayamajhi on the percussion. The concert, featuring a combination of Nepathya’s recent releases along with their classic numbers, was enjoyed by the Nepali expatriates who included many students and families.
Kiran Krishna Shrestha of Nepa~laya, the promoters and live show producers of Nepathya, expressed his happiness at the success of the concert and said that, “Nepathya no longer is limited to being a musical identity alone. With the passage of time, the band’s concert has become an opportunity for people to come together and celebrate Nepal.”
This is Nepathya’s fourth visit to Australia, having earlier performed there in 2008, 2012 and 2015. They are scheduled to perform next in Auckland on Friday, July 28.
