We are glad to be raising the bar of Nepali shows there," the press statement said as quoting Kiran Krishna Shrestha of nepa~laya, the promoters of Nepathya.

“I am thankful to all our listeners living in Nepal and beyond for accepting our music with such affection’’, said Nepathya front man Amrit Gurung. “We are glad to be performing in Seoul for the fifth time during Nepathya’s 25 years of Music,” he added.

As part of the 25 year celebration, Nepathya has been releasing music videos in regular frequency and have recently concluded their Australia - New Zealand Tour with encouraging acceptance.
