Creative Movement Through Music
10 April 2011-Sunday
-Supriya Pradhan

It’s been almost three years since the formation of the current government and yet there has been no sign of a new constitution. The ongoing political instability has not been of any help either. But just when things are about to go overboard, all these unfavourable circumstances have inspired some of our artists from Nepali music industry to speak against the delay in making the new constitution. As a result, they have recorded a song to mark a protest of their own. “Banau Sambidhan” represents the voice of people.

Taking a huge initiative to lay pressure upon our politicians to establish the set of fundamental principles for our state is senior musician Shanti Ram Rai who has also single-handedly composed the song. The project sees a great mass of fifty artists teaming up for this bold step thirty of whom are singers. Some of them are Ram Krishna Dhakal, Reema Gurung, Narendra Pyasi, Kala Rai, Sarala Rai, Benuka Rai, Bhisan Mukarun, Mandavi Tripathi, and Rai Nabin. Shrawan Mukarun, on the other hand, has penned its strong lyrics.

The music video for the single has also been completed and was launched on 9th April, Saturday. President of Committee of Constitution Nilambar Acharya did the honours of officially releasing the visual. It has been directed by Suraj Shrestha and is far different than the ones we usually see on television channels. There is a big team working behind the recording of the song but what appears in the footage is much greater than that. It includes appearances of over 200 people from numerous professions, races and castes. Starring in the video of “Banau
Sambidhan” are doctors, lawyers, sportsmen, literary figures, personalities from film industry, students and even farmers and workers.

Sharing his views on the initiative, Shanti Ram Rai said, “‘Banau
Sambidhan’ is less of an entertainment matter and more of a protest. In fact, it is the first ever creative movement by the people done through the medium of music in the Nepalese history. And we believe it is going to work for sure. Representatives from three different parties have already put forward their commitment – Shobhakar Parajuli (CA member Nepali Congress), Agni Sapkota (Nepal Maoist) and Pradeep Gyawali (Nepal Communist).”
