In a predominantly stagnant Nepali music industry where most bands don’t play their instruments and everything sounds and looks manufactured. With a desire of playing different styles of music, and with a couple of songs already under his belt. And unlike in the past, Robin was seen playing the rhythm on his sunburst Fender. Kta/Kt the debut album of “Robin and the New Revolution” was a huge hit and the band grabbed some prestigious awards aswell. More than awards, Kta/Kt brought about a change. Following up Kta/Kt, the band produced another acclaimed album – 13000, which was dedicated to the people who lost their lives during the political insurgency in the country.
