”Pailaharu” by Lochan Rijal: Red Monsoon OST – An Eelum Dixit Film

The song ‘Pailaharu’ was composed for the Nepali Film ‘Red Monsoon’. Since most Nepali instruments are confined to traditional performance contexts, this song aims to encourage the use of these instruments in contemporary music production by exploring new playing styles and sound qualities. Instruments such as Sarangi (a type of fiddle), Arbaja (an indigenous lute that is fading into obscurity) and Nagara (Newari kettle drums) have been used in the creation of this song.
