Kanta Dab Dab
From early days of Looza to the present days of Mukti & Revival... From past legendary kickass compilations like Muzik Isles to Echoes in the Valley. Kanta Dab Dab constitutes of 3 prime figures of the Nepalese music scene that have contributed a lot – from teaching to playing to catering to the masses for decades. And as if that wasn’t enough, Rizu Tuladhar, Sunit Kansakar and Nikhil Tuladhar gave rise to this incredible blend of Western, Eastern, World and Fusion music naming it – Kanta Dab Dab after a character of the Newari jatras that never speaks but just creates these amazing soundscapes. If a band has ever been aptly named, then this surely is one. The atmosphere created through Rizu Tuladhar’s groovy bass, Nikhil Tuladhar’s almost calculus based drumming and Sunit Kansakar’s pedal infused Sitar and experimentation is a notable one and the band has been invited on many international stages from Japan to Uzbekistan to Europe as well. With one album under their belt, they are working on newer tunes and horizons with more and more gig appearances nationally as well. A seasoned band with seasoned veterans, their live shows are a delight and you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see them if they’re playing anywhere around you.
