According to its organizer, Mr Utsav Chaudhary, Bipul’s debut show in Oakland was cancelled due to Visa process in India and now the team is performing it’s final concert in Oakland. So after sold out shows in major US Cities including New York we are expected to host one of the most successful band. So we are expecting more crowds than it was scheduled before and as a matter of fact most of the tickets are already gone . We are really excited and lucky to host Bipul Chettri’s final concert in Oakland. On July 22 they are performing in Texas before coming to perform here. The concert in New York was organized by PNM Entertainment, Prabal Gurung and Lights Out Entertainment.
Bipul chettri himself writes his status in Facebook,”Bye Baltimore, bye DC. Off to Dallas and onwards to SF for weekend gigs. See you guys on the 22nd and 23rd. Cheers!”
Bipul Chettri has successfully managed to blend contemporary sounds to Himalayan mountain folk music. His debut album, ‘Sketches of Darjeeling’ hit the market in 2014 and spread across the world like wildfire. This album became a top seller within 48 hours of its release on one of the biggest indie retail site in India while making him the Highest Selling Artiste on that portal for the year 2014-15, a feat very rare for a Nepali language album.
His unique compositions draw all kinds of crowds, from youngsters to adults, as his music not only breaks the generation gap but also the physical boundaries. He is from Kalimpong, a major educational town of Darjeeling where he studied and practiced music since childhood. His music reeks of the sounds of the hills and the mountains.
One of his interview he said about Blending folk with contemporary:
“I think the current generation has lost touch with the roots of our music, what with so much music being churned out in this modern digital world of ours. So I thought the best way to keep interest alive was to take this route where even the listeners could relate in some way.” Most of the listeners feel connection of nostalgia and the mountains in his music that is the key element to draw attention of large crowd from all levels of folks”
Maya, the US Tour 2016 is based on his next album called ‘Maya’. It gives our team immense pleasure to see such a positive response writes Naam Binako team on their Facebook page and is doing their level best to make it one of the most successful events to pave the way to host other great singers and bands in the future.
According to the organizer, the event starts at the Cocktail lounge and a VIP reception with a drink, which then moves on to one of the most awaited concerts.
