Nepal’s folk rock band Nepathya is performing at the Olympic Hall of Seoul Olympic Park in the South Korean capital after two weeks.
An organisation of Nepalis working in Korea, Kaski Pariwar, will host the event on October 4 on the occasion of Korea’s Chuseok festival.

There are around 40,000 Nepalis working in Korea.
It will be Nepathya’s 5th appearance in the South Korean capital.

We are glad to be raising the bar of Nepali shows there.” said Kiran Krishna Shrestha of nepa~laya, the promoters of Nepathya.
Nepathya front man Amrit Gurung said, “We are glad to be performing in Seoul for the fifth time during Nepathya’s 25 years of music.”
