Everytime I come across Nepali people singing, dancing or acting – doing something where they’re not speaking Nepali, I tend to think twice before I share it out. It’s pretty sad that a lot of people (not everyone) get really fired solely based on the fact that the ‘talent’ is not doing something in Nepali. I have no idea what the reaction will be to this video but I’m sharing it because these guys have done such a marvellous job covering such a huge song!
The Afreen Afreen cover by Ankit Babu Adhikari and Prabisha Adhikari has been inspired by the Coke Studio Season 9 iteration of ‘Afreen’. The original has been sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The man in charge of guitar, arrangement, recording, mixing and mastering of this cover is Kobid Bazra.
What do you guys think?
