August is definitely setting out to be the biggest month for Nepali music lovers in the UK! Popular Nepali singer Sabin Rai will be heading over to the UK to perform in Ashford, Farnborough and London. It will also be the very first time that Rai will be performing live with an orchestra band and they are the U N US BAND. The Summer Mega Live Concert by Alpabiram Entertainment also has Axix Band, U n Us Band, Anu Rai and Sarita Gurung in its line-up. The organizers confidently believe that Summer Mega Live will be a concert experience like no other. Attendees can expect Sabin Rai to belt out his popular hits including Guransha Ko Fed Muni. Who knows, he might even perform his most recent song Timi Nai Bhana, the man has a catalogue of hits that will keep you on your feet throughout. Not only does he have a huge collection of hits but I hear Sabin Rai is also one the best live performers that Nepal has to offer. A total rockstar! Don’t forget to catch him live and in action on the 10th August in Ashford, 24th August in Farnborough and 31st August in London.
To make things even more exciting, Axix Band will also be performing their popular hits including the classic Adhuro Prem and Timi Pheri Auna on the very same stage. Who hasn’t heard of Adhuro Prem? So much memories with that song (PS. If you haven’t then I suggest you go on a youtube spree straightaway). Having been to a Axix Band concert in Nepal once, all I’ll say is that these guys really know how to get the crowd pumped up. When I went to see them live I wasn’t familiar with their songs as I was accompanying a friend who wanted to attend the show but after the hour-long set I returned home an Axix fan. Can’t wait to relive those moments again.
The U n Us Band who are the former recipients of Band of the Year Award will bring their A game when the concerts take place in August. The band who are most known and loved for their live orchestral performances have been active since 2003. Through their music, U n Us band have also supported different charity events and played for crowds of thousands. Each member of the band boasts of particular set of skills on musical instruments from piano, flute to madal. Honestly, they will be the mutu of the live shows with their eargasmic music.
UK based Anu Rai and Sarita Gurung are two exceptional talents with a gifted voice. Anu Rai has previously performed in various acoustic gigs and events around London and has also several videos on youtube. Popular videos by Anu Rai includes La La La alongside Nattu and a cover of Next To Me by Emile Sande. Similarly, Sarita Gurung is also another passionate singer based in the UK. Sarita also hosts the radio show Yuva Vibes on BFBS Gurkha Radio and has two videos on youtube.
