The Nepalese music scene has thousands of rock songs. Each Nepalese rock song has its own flavor and specialty.
Although there are thousands of hit rock songs, there are also many rock songs that are less heard although they are worth listening to.
This week, Onlinekhabar listed a set of rock songs that are less popular but worth your attention.
Yoddha is a Nepalese rock song by the group Atharva. Although the song had great potential to be popular, it remained underrated. The song is about a warrior. Along with the powerful lyrics, what made the song rockier were its guitar solos, performed by Anuj Man Shakya. Interestingly, this rock song also consists of a fusion of classical music in the middle where the tabala was used.
2. Ekchhin Baraalinda
Ekchhin Baraalida is another most underrated Nepali rock song from Rory and Friends. The song is part of the album with the name of the group. This song has a humble beginning that features a flute and a sweet guitar melody. But later the song takes it to another level with power chords and high notes.
Rock band Cobweb has a lot of popular songs, but they also have some underrated songs and Pratibimba is one of them. Along with its composition, the lyrics penned by Prajwal Kattel and Ritavrat Joshi are equally powerful. This Nepalese rock song is about existence, consciousness and crisis. The song is taken from the album Astitwa.
