After performing in Dubai on March Friday, Nepathya frontman Amrit Gurung posted a video on his social media with a note, which said – “ Sabaibhandapahilahami…….Dhanyabaad Dubai, Maya Ra Sathko Laagi” –We are first………?  Thank you Dubai, for your love and support.”

The video showed the incomplete line being completed by the Dubai audience. Amrit is heard reciting ‘Timi Pani Nepali… Ma Pani Nepali… Hami Nepali with the crowd following him line by line, obediently. Then when he screams and asks - Sabai Bhanda Pahile Hami ……..? The crowd screams back …. Nepali. He repeats the question few times and each time the crowd screamed louder saying ………..Nepali.

The 40-second video was just a glimpse of the 2-hour long show, but enough to showcase the ambiance of the event. The moment was lived and cherished by more than 2,500 audiences in attendance at the Al Nasr Leisure Land in Dubai. However, the reach went beyond and all over the world, as the video went viral with more than 10 thousand views and hundreds of shares within an hour of posting.

Along with such moment of national sentiment, Nepathya shared joys from Nepal with their folk tunes and pumped the audience through the 2 hours show with their rocking performance. “The joy I could see in the faces spread over the hall was the most satisfying scene for me while performing. We are so lucky and thankful to have such loving listeners.” Said Amrit. 

People came in big groups in reserved buses from all other states mainly from Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Ras Al Khaimah’ said Sujan Raja of the organizing team. This was Nepathya’s second show in Dubai as per the press statement released by Nepalaya. Their debut show in 2015 was affected by the earthquake aftershocks. The 2-hour show was a combination of national sentiment and folk fusion. A spectrum of joy with ‘Resham’ to ‘Taalko Pani’, the crowd got emotional with ‘Yo Zindagani’ to ‘Maimarijaunla’ and ‘Koshiko Paani. Then finally a moment of national awakening and pride with ‘Hami Nepal’, ‘Gaun Gaunbata Utha’ and ‘Rato Ra Chandra’.

Amrit was accompanied on stage by Dhruba Lama on drums, Suraj Thapa on Keyboard, Subin Shakya on bass, Niraj Gurung on guitars and Shanti Rayamajhi on madal.
