Sunil Pariyar has been playing flute, for more than 15 years, beginning to learn at the age of eight. And has music in his blood so to speak. He learned to play the Baansuri (bamboo flute) from another family member and began with folk music, but from the last 7 years he has also been studying and playing classical music.
He is currently based in Lisbon Portugal and performs his music and painting workshops across Europe.
As a school boy he played for pleasure and to entertain his friends and was asked to perform at many school events and special occasions such as open days. He now earns his living mainly by playing and teaching music. He has taught flute at the Nepali Folk Musical instrument museum (NFMIM) since 2001 and he is a member of the traditional folk music band trio Naatyashwora that perform on authentic folk instruments and shun the use of synthesizers. Naatyashwora have so far recorded 5 Instrumental CDs of Himalayan melodies published by (NFMIM) between 2003 and 2007 and been to Wales [UK] for the concert series at October.
His interests in music are eclectic; in addition to my traditional and classical music skills I have also developed a love for ‘fusion’ music. Few years ago he formed a band called Sfatic with several other young musicians who play a mixture of Eastern and Western instruments. Sfatic play in clubs and bars twice a week including the well known Moksha club and are preparing for our first album. As well as performing with Natyaswora and Sfatic he has worked as a session musician on other albums and have performed as a flute player at the Nepal Academy, the Nepal National Theater and the Nepal arts Council. He has released my first ever solo album Realisation Magical , Musical Journey in the year 2015 octcober. Which is produced , manufactured & produced by kathmandu music center. Which can be also purchased from Itunes, Cd Baby, amazon mp3 as well.
