Kathmandu, March 14, 2017: Musician Vikram Gurung was brimming with nostalgia when Nepathya started off their Hong Kong show, that took place on Sunday, with the band’s upcoming single Kuroop Anuhar. The song was penned by Sarubhakta and composed more than three decades ago by Gurung.
“Saru and I had made this song during our days at Tribhuwan University. I am listening to it after a long time,” Vikram shared after the show. “Though Nepathya have presented it in their own style, I could share in the feelings infused in their performance,” he added.
Nepathya’s Hong Kong gig, organised by Tamu Association, also proved instrumental in bringing together two different generations in one place. “The choice of entertainment is completely different for us and our children who are born here,” shared Sher Bahadur Pun, a transportation entrepreneur based in Hong Kong for the past 25 years. “Every time Nepathya comes here, I feel rejuvenated to see Nepalis of all ages come together to enjoy in one place… My own children prefer to speak Cantonese. Their choice of TV shows and music are different. While I struggle to connect them with Nepali culture, shows like these by Nepathya help them maintain a connection with Nepali culture and music.”
Nepathya, during their two-hour long show, performed a range of their new and old songs and wrapped up the show with the song Timi Pani Nepali, Ma Pani Nepali, Hami Nepali.
Next up, Nepathya will perform in a concert in Pokhara on April 8.
