| About the Band |
Earlier days comprised of English songs that were previously recorded as demos in a home studio. Band anticipates to re-record old songs in the debut album releasing in 2013. In 2005, Rajan collaborated with associated Nepali musicians to compose Nepali songs which will be recorded professionally soon. In 2008, Nirajan Rai 'Rajan's younger brother in Sydney' re-unites with his elder brother after 17 years being apart and joins the band to compose new songs. Life has been a series of struggles, void, and survival for these musicians.
Band's goal is to raise awareness in each of their audience to welcome love, compassion, empathy, sympathy, joy, fulfillment and unity through the making of music. "As musicians, we are simply a medium. What flows through our music comes from the universal energy which no one owns. Not even the composer." Rajan expresses. In the coming year, the band plans to initiate charity efforts in Nepal's rural areas to assist orphans, economically/physically challenged, elderly etc.
