Muskuraye (Acoustic) 🌻

I want to dedicate this song to my beautiful Mamu and Baba - for all the sacrifices you’ve made for us and continue to make - to give us the life we've always dreamt of. 

My mother pushed me to follow my passion and my dreams no matter what while carrying myself with grace, pride and humility. My father taught me to be strong, balanced, independent and to be the empowered woman I am today. Hopefully someday, when I have children, I will be able to do the same for them.

I wrote this song about 10 years ago when I was first visiting Kathmandu after many years of being away from home and growing up in Canada. Performing this song for you all today has made me indulge in a lot of nostalgia and I'm very thankful for that :) 🌻.

Love,
Astha
