Nepathya ( नेपथ्य ) is a popular Nepalese music band that was formed in Pokhara, Nepal in the early 1990s. Nepathya is best known for its blending of folk melodies into new, youth-friendly pop and rock tune. Since 1994, Nepathya has gained consistent popularity and recognition. Nepathya’s songs also portray contemporary Nepal. The moving force behind this band is Amrit Gurung. Son of a former British Gurkha, he wears Gandhian frames ( supposed to have inherited it from an aunt of his who was a staunch follower of M.K. Gandhi) and sings songs about peace and harmony. His songs encompass all of Nepal and is not limited to Kathmandu Valley. His songs have an equally powerful impact on Gorkhas of India. Nepathya has seen many changes in its band's line up.
