Kamana was released on January 25, 2007 and Amar Gurung inaugurated the album. Lyricist Dinesh Adhikari and Deep Shrestha spoke on the program. The album review was made by Prakash Sayami. The video of "timi jasti subashili" was also shown during the album release.
Like his album's name, Rajesh has some wishes to be made true for this album "Kamana". Definitely, it's every singer's wish to promote his album and get a good return for the investment. Even Rajesh Payal Rai has the same Kamana for this album. He attempts to make a video out of all the tracks compiled in this latest album.
It might be every singer's wish no doubt! But why does he need to do that? We agree that today people hear what they see. Music videos have become so prominent that people do not want to listen to the songs which do not have a video and yes; music videos also make some songs a hit! So, is this the reason why you want to do that? Isn't it very expensive to make a video of every song? Are you confident about the return?
Rajesh says, "Definitely, today's world is all about watching. I have experienced that there is a high demand of vcds in today's market than audio cds, especially in the international market. So, I think from the international programs, I can collect the amount I would be investing."
Certainly, that might also be true….He was so busy with international programs and film songs, it took him about three years to bring out his album. Nepali music artists certainly die for the abroad projects don't they? Well, at least, they have this opportunity to collect the investment. So, no comments on that.
Kamana as Rajesh describes, has a variety of music. It contains all kinds of songs from pop to love, romantic numbers, gazals, some lok and so on. So, this must be something different isn't it? What is that you have tried new this time? Rajesh says, "The major thing I have done is a song based on Limbu culture. The song is totally based on Limbu culture's festival "Paalam", which might be something new to the music industry. The song is by Khem Raj Gurung. Also, the songs are musically rich and I have put all my effort for this".
He has taken the lyrics from Ishwor Ghimire, Tulasi basnet, Ramesh Thitiz, Khem Raj Gurung, Raj kumar Ballav, Puspa lata acharya and Anushil. The music is done by Bharat lama, Khem Raj Gurung, Pramod Nirwaan, Prahlad Basnet, Om Prakash Rai, Kundan Rai and one by Rajesh himself.
Rajesh is all set for his album promotion now. His promos are aired by different channels and most probably this week, the music video of "timi jasti subashili" will be premiered. The video shooting is done in the UK and Scotland where he had gone for some musical tour. The director of the video is "Milan Chams", a British Army. It's a romantic song.
The next video he is planning to do is "Sirai phoolyo sirabandi". The video of other songs will be made eventually. His other promotional plans include, a Nepal Tour. It's not completely fixed, but he is planning to make tour to Dharan. Damak, Gaighat, Itahari, Pokhara and Dhangadi.
