KATHMANDU, Sept 16: As part of the video release series during the Nepathya Silver Jubilee year, the September release comes with a simple lyric video of a song from Nepathya's ninth album – ‘Aaina Jhyaal’, according to the press statement released by Nepa-laya.
The composition and lyrics of the song, ‘Mai Mari Jaaunla’ is based on a melody from the Langtang region and was released on Wednesday. This is Nepathya's eighth independent YouTube release since it started its official channel - YouTube.com/nepathyaofficial. All the songs released so far have been well received.
"YouTube has democratized the musicians’ access to their listeners. For all new and old artists, this is turning out to be a medium where they can independently exercise their connection with the listeners, ending the dependency of traditional mediums,” said Kiran Krishna Shrestha of Nepa-laya.
‘Mai Mari Jaunla’ is composed in a Tamang Selo rhythm and covers the story of people separated due to foreign employment, some of whom never make it alive to meet their loved ones again.
With simple comic art in the background, the text in the music video moves to follow the lyrics. "We have been releasing 10 songs on an average per album," shared Nepathya frontman Amrit Gurung.
The song was released after Nepathya returned from their Australia-New Zealand Tour. "With this release, our visual team at Kathaharu is already working on our next release. For the next release, we will present a fresh song from Nepathya's yet to be released album," shared Shrestha.
