Nepathya rocks full house in Sydney
KATHMANDU: A lively performance by Nepathya enthralled the audience at Luna Park’s Big Top auditorium in Sydney on Saturday. As many as 3,000 audiences had gathered to witness and experience the electrifying performance by the band as per a press statement.
The show featured all Nepathya classics along with the recently released numbers. The Nepali diaspora in Sydney sang and danced along with the band. “Sydney has been a dear place for Nepathya. This is our fourth show and each time, Nepalis residing here show a great deal of love and affection to us,” shared Nepathya front man, Amrit Gurung, after the show. “The audiences have showered Nepathya with love for all these years and it makes me feel more and more indebted to our well-wishers,” he added.
“Being part of a successful show is always a delight. This is the third time we have been part of Nepathya’s tour in Australia and each time we see the intensity increasing,” said one of the organizers of the show, Hari Ramjali of Myagdi Overseas.
“Nepathya has been beating their own record when it comes to attracting audience at indoor events in Sydney,” shared Mukti Roka of the organizing team. “In 2008, there were 1,200 attendees at the university auditorium and in 2012 we had a crowd of 2,200 at the Sydney Town Hall. In 2015, we saw the participation of 2,600 people at the Luna Park and this year, we were sold out with 3,000 Nepathya admirers,” he elaborated.
“I have attended Nepathya’s concerts in Sydney for three times and Amrit never lets us down,” said Sushila Sherchan, who had come to the show with her spouse. Along with many Nepali students living in Australia, there were many families who attended the show. The lyrics with message of unity and patriotism that Amrit shared during the show touched many hearts. “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,” said Kiran Krishna Shrestha of Nepa~laya, promoters and live show producers of the band. Amrit was accompanied on stage by Dhruba Lama on drums, Suraj Thapa on keyboard, Subin Shakya on bass, Niraj Gurung on guitar and Shanti Rayamajhi on percussion.“We are glad our first international tour of our 25th year celebration has begun with success. We now look forward to meeting our well-wishers in New Zealand,” said Amrit.
The band leaves for New Zealand to perform their first ever show in the Kiwi Island on July 28, Friday at the Sky City Theatre in Auckland.
