The prime scene of Rock as well as Rock and Roll during those days used to be Jhochhen aka ‘Freak Street’ notorious for its marijuana and narcotics which attracted many a psychedelic rockers during the 70s. The first recorded Rock and Roll song of Nepal is “Diunlaa” by Kumar Basnet. The pioneers of Nepalese Rock scene were Mukti Shakya, Dev Rana (drummer), Jyoti Ghimire (guitarist), Pemba Lepcha (guitarist) and various other singers and bands who emerged in the Freak Street scene in the Hippie era.

Metal era
With the advent of time, the rock scene in Nepal changed from the early rock and roll, Blues, rock to Punk and Metal. However, most of the bands that performed during metal era didn’t produce many original songs and covered the songs of the West. Most notable of these bands are Wrathchild who were deeply influenced by Iron Maiden. Bands like Cruentus, Antim Grahan, Gothika, Lost Oblivion, Arachnids, etc. are some of the popular bands within the underground. Atomic Bush is a crucial progressive metal band. But many newly rising bands are also prevalent in the local underground scene.

Present scenario
The present scene music of Nepal includes several popular rock and roll bands, including 1974 ad (Hard Rock), Nepathya (Folk Rock), Mukti and Revival (Blues Rock), and the long-running Cobweb. There has also been a surge in local rock/metal bands with the emergence of numerous bands like Nastik, X-mantra and Albatross and more recently Atomic Bush, Ushma Beg, Nekhvam and many others. An indie rock scene has also emerged, with punk bands like “Rai Ko Ris”(www.raikoris.com), with singer and bass player Sareena Rai, leading the way to a nascent DIY movement.

Kathmandu and rock music
