Rock band Anuprastha is performing live at Omnia The Club, Thamel tonight.

Anuprastha is a rock group from Nepal. Anu means “music,” and Prastha means “first” in the Sanskrit origin of the name Anuprastha. The majority of their songs are in the rock genre, but they also incorporate folk music from Nepal. When the band members were still in college in 2004, they created the group.After struggling for several years, the band successfully gained national attention when they won the reality show Sprite Band Challenge 1st edition in 2008, which was aired on Nepal’s national TV channel. There were three strong finalists — Anuprastha,  and Bequeath — but Anuprastha took the crown along with one lakh rupees and a ticket to shoot a music video.

They released that first music video, “Din”, in July 2009 in two versions. They launched their debut album Anuprastha in 2010.They released the single “Ujyaalo” in 2016.
