NepCali recently released their Debut Album on April 1st, 2021and getting ready for their firsttour from Cali to Texas // Vocalist (Arpan Karki),
Guitarist (Sunny Shrestha), Drummer (Scott Collins) and Bassist (Sabas Carillo).
NepCali was founded in 2015 by vocalist Arpan Karki and Sushant Amatya in Long Beach, CA. Both arrived to the United States as immigrants to pursue their career in education. However, upon meeting each other in 2015, they decided their fate was in something else. They formed NepCali, and began the growth.
The band has been affected by many lineup changes, even recently. Founding member Sushant Amatya had returned home to Nepal in the start of March, 2020 and has been unable to return to the United States. This led to NepCali having to turn to Sabas Carillo to replace Sushant on bass. Sabas’s first show was 1 week from being asked to cover.
