Double Dose Of Rock and Roll

As the evening wears on, Durbarmarg comes alive—in more ways than one. With its fair share of eateries and hotspots, the street has become a veritable ‘hangout’ for much of the city’s hip crowds. And adding to the general buzz on Friday was Mukti and Revival whose trademark tunes, along with those of Abhaya and the Steam Injuns rang out late into the night on July 29.

Held on the premises of Cafereena at Sherpa Mall, the event was heavily attended. An impeccably-dressed Abhaya Subba soon stepped onstage, accompanied by Tsewang Chuzang Hyolmo on bass, Sailendra Singh on keyboard, Nabin Thapa on drums and Palzar Rinchen on guitar. Starting off with popular songs like Yehi Nai Mero Ghar, Suna Suna and an energised rendition of the hit Sakdina Ma.

Subba followed these up with a cover of Nepali Hami as well as Deep Purple’s Highway Star, her voice as alluring as ever. But it was the bands performance of Timro Lagi Sara Sansaar—a song that won awards at the Nepali Musical Talent Hunt Show organised by the BBC Nepali Service in 2009—that was probably the biggest hit with audiences.

“Abhaya is more or less an icon in the Nepali music industry,” Mukti Shakya said of his co-performer. “She has a distinct voice and amazing stage presence—she’s the quintessential rock star.”

Soon, it was Mukti and Revival’s turn on stage, with a reformed line-up consisting of Shakya and Sunil Kansakar on guitar, Rabindara Shrestha on drums and bassist Raju Tuladhar filling in for Roshan Kansakar, currently overseas. The set lasted almost an hour and a half, starting with the iconic Ke Bho Yaha, followed by other classic foot-stompers like Aakashai Ma, Dekhdai Chhu and Samashya.

The instrumental rendition of the Gayatri Mantra was a particularly interesting element of the performance. Shakya’s son Nabin then came up to join the band, impressing the crowd with his skills on the saxophone. Classic tunes like Basanta Udayo and the bluesy Kanchi Nani were also played, and the show wrapped up with the familiar strains of Dalli Resham, one requested specifically by the audiences.

Abhaya Subba had nothing but praise for the band, saying “Mukti dai is a classic; sharing the stage with him is an honour.”

Bikesh Kayastha, band manager for Mukti and Revival, said he was thrilled with how the event—jointly organised by Positive Vibes and Royal Stag—had come along. And programme co-ordinator Ishwor Khadka, who has been in charge of coordinating a whole range of gigs from July 15 at various venues in the city, said that the entire point of these events is to promote rock and roll in Nepal.
