It's the turn of Assam based Nepali to perform at Paleti

Meera Thapa, an active music artiste from Digboi, Assam has arrived in Kathmandu to perform in nepa~laya's monthly musical concert Paleti scheduled for June 27.

Meera Thapa was raised in a musical atmosphere as her father Lila Ram Rana was a singer in Guwahati Radio. She was exposed to Rabindra Sangeet and started singing Hindi and Assamese songs as well. Later on she graduated in classical singing.

Haribhakta Katuwal and Bhabilal Lamichhane inspired her to take up Nepali contemporary music. Principal of Jarda Primary School in Guwahati, Meera teaches Nepali and Bengali. She has been active for the promotion of Nepali music in Assam and surrounding areas.

Meera says she is excited to perform at the Paleti adding, "I feel that I have been rewarded today for learning music from early childhood."

She will be singing some unheard songs penned by Hari Bhakta Katuwal, which will be a pleasant attraction of this Paleti, organisers say. ia June 22 08
