One of the most revered voices in the modern Nepali music, Adrian Pradhan is a formidable name in Nepali music. A true artist in his own right, the singer-songwriter and composer of the former 1974 AD fame plays multiple instruments, sells out international tours and still manages to stick to his humble roots. He has 5 solo albums to his credit plus 8 more with his former band and currently collaborates with long time friend Phiroj Syangden. We are proud to announce Adrain Pradhan as our judge.
