Laxcha Bantawa, the founder of NepUNITY recently went to Nepal where she directed Manas Ghale aka Loorey of Nepsydaz’s upcoming music video titled Yatri. Now they say its better to learn off the ropes and indeed after hearing and seeing the few rushes from Laxcha’s experience in making the video it certainly has been a learning experience for this 22 year-old film student from the University of Leeds. Yatri will be Manas’s first release from his solo album. Explaining the video Laxcha states that this is unlike many other that are making the rounds in Nepal today; the story plays an important role in the video which relates very well with the lyrics.
During the process of making the video Laxcha recieved support from the Party Nepal team and various key figures in the two-day shoot. It is very inspiring to see someone who is fighting against the odds and following their dreams since creative subjects are still pretty much looked down upon in our society… It was lovely to hear about her time in Nepal and I would very much like to let the viewers hear it too… the struggles… the joys… the feeling of giving up… they’re all part of the yatra but Laxcha looks forward to the result which she believe’s will keep her going.
In her own words:
