After a month of travelling and performing across the nation, Nepathya concluded their ‘Music for Humanity’ tour in Kathmandu on Saturday.
The legendary folk-rock band opened their final show held in Bhrikutimandap with the screening of two music videos followed by a performance of their latest release ‘Bhatbhate.’
As the band performed their hits like ‘Bheda ko Oon Jasto’, ‘Chari Maryo’, and ‘Jomsomai Bazar’, frontman Amrit Gurung delivered messages of peace and humanity throughout the show.
The tour’s finale saw many known faces in attendance including CPN-UML Chairman and former Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, Nepali Congress General Secretary Gagan Thapa, Hari Bansha Acharya, and Madan Krishna Acharya among others.
“It had been a while since I attended a live concert,” said Nepali Congress General Secretary Gangan Thapa, who attended the concert with his family.
The tour was aimed to support Manav Sewa Ashram, a social organisation which provides shelter to the homeless.
Ramji Adhikari, president of Manav Sewa Ashram, expressed his happiness at the grand success of the tour.
“We have aimed to rid the entire country of street-dependent people within two years,” Adhikari said. “The success of the tour makes us hopeful that the resolution will easily be fulfilled.”
The band performed songs ‘Resham’ and ‘Taal ko pani’ before concluding the finale with ‘Rato ra Chandra Surya.’
Gurung was accompanied by Dhruv Lama on the drums, Suraj Thapa on keyboards, Subin Shakya on bass, Niraj Gurung on guitar, and Shanti Raimajhi on madal.
In the month-long tour, the band travelled across the country with their entourage and covered cities like Biratnagar, Birgunj, Hetauda, Narayanghat, Nepalgunj, Dhangadhi, Surkhet, Butwal, Pokhara, and Kathmandu.
Known for their signature folk-rock music, Nepathya has conducted similar social campaigns like ‘Sundar Shanta Nepal’ and ‘Shanti Ko Lagi Sikchya’ in the past. The band’s initiatives work towards bringing communities together through their music and contribute to the benefit of society at large.
