Nepathya is to Perform in Two US Cities

Nepathya is to Perform in Two US Cities. Nepathya is all set to perform in the US. The band is preparing for a two-city tour in the US starting from 9th of June (Saturday). The band is scheduled to perform at The Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas on 9th June 2018.

Nepathya is a Nepalese music band that was formed in the early 1990’s by three students from Pokhara. They are the greatest band that has ever been formed in Nepal. Nepathya is best known for blending folk melodies with modern western-influenced rock music. Nepathya is well known for contemporary tunes that have strong ties with indigenous music and songs sung using regional dialects from rural Nepal.

Nepathya first traveled to the US in 2004, when they performed a show in Phoenix and Washington DC. Since then, the band has been to the US on three other occasions and has performed in the cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, and San Francisco. This time, Nepathya is to perform in two US cities.

“We are delighted to host Nepathya in Dallas,” said DJ MoMo of the organizing group. “We have been pursuing this opportunity since 2015 when Nepathya had come for their show in New York. However, due to tour management issues, it could not materialize. We then went to meet the band’s management when they were in San Francisco in 2016. The show was agreed upon and our team is delighted to share this joy with the Dallas based Nepali diaspora.” The show in Dallas is being organized by DT and Momo Entertainment.

The band will engage in some recording consultancy, before performing their second show at the Royale Boston on 24th of June. The Boston show is being hosted jointly by Jatra Nepal and Boston Tamu Samaj. Both these shows will be part of Nepathya’s silver jubilee celebration.

Speaking before the band left for the tour, Nepathya’s Amrit Gurung said, “We have been traveling in and beyond Nepal as part of this celebration. It is humbling to receive such love and support from our listeners everywhere we perform. We look forward to sharing our musical journey with our listeners in Boston and Dallas.”

After completing their two-city tour, Nepathya will return home on June 27.
