New Single Out Now

SALALA by Bipul Chettri

'Salala' in the Nepali language is an onomatopoeia of the sound of the river flowing. 

This song is about leaving one's home for faraway lands because of the difficulties and uncertainties of life in the hills. And so, it is filled with longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, and the incurable desire to return home while being unable to.

With the river Teesta being the metaphor of the only constant that keeps flowing regardless of the circumstances.

Songsmith Bipul Chettri crafts a patient, adorned and sagacious EP with Samaya. (Rolling Stones Magazine)

His lockdown EP ‘Samaya’ is without doubt one of best collections of indie songs this year. (Rock Street Journal)

Bipul’s new EP, ‘Samaya’ (which means time, period or juncture) is in a nutshell, a collection of trips his mind sauntered off on when the world went into lockdown mode in that period of quiet, loneliness, despair and disillusionment. It is a fully stripped down, acoustic and organic set of five songs written and composed while he, just like the rest of us, was physically cut off from the rest of the world.


All songs have been performed on a single acoustic guitar, sometimes accompanied by another instrument, if at all. While circumstances might have dictated the need to go a little ‘naked’ in production, the absence of veneer and gloss only serve to help each song grab your complete and undivided attention. So that when Bipul sings about the spaces where he wandered off to, it becomes the story of your journeys as well.

All songs written, composed and arranged by Bipul Chettri
