Nepathya became the first Nepalese band to perform at Wembley Arena on Saturday 3rd August. The concert which had been organized by Parcha Productions and Subsonic Routes managed to bring over 7000 people from all over. It was also an amazing sight to see a mix of young and old at one venue enjoying some world class music. The two hour long energetic set was introduced by BBC Nepali Sewa’s Suman Kharel at approx 8.15PM. The atmosphere and the volume turned a notch higher when the band sang Resham, Taal Ko Pani and Sa Karnali. I was frantically rocking out to the music whilst tweeting up a storm to keep those at home connected with the historic event. The only regret I have is not standing on the floor with the crowd, I had a great view from my seat but seeing the thousands of people standing and dancing definitely made me feel a little left out. It was an amazing night that everyone will remember for years to come.
Music For Unity it was, front man Amrit Gurung spoke about the importance of remembering our roots, our language and culture. Ahh that moment when they sang the song Gau Gau Bata Utha from the film Balidan; just out of the world. The band also performed a very patriotic number ‘Raato Ra Chandra Surya’.
Hats off to Parcha Productions team for their round the clock promotion and giving this experience of a life time. Aaat garne le nai garcha 😉 Ever since I had seen the videos of Nepathya performing at Sydney, to watch them was actually one of the things from my bucket list. I didn’t realize I’d be ticking it off so soon. I don’t know when we will see a Nepali band perform next at Wembley Arena or o2 Arena but I have a feeling it will take a while.
