The band has toured extensively throughout the tri-state area since its formation in 2007. They have had international projects, primarily in India and Nepal, working with school groups and green advocates to celebrate Solutions to these challenges wherever the band encounters them. The band will visit Nepal this November to help as they can after the earthquake events of early May.

The band’s performance at The Upstream Gallery on June 6th will spotlight their latest release – Saura Yatra – which is a collection of songs they learned for the ground-breaking 2013 Solar Expedition in the Nepali Himalayas; Nepali folks songs, Buddhist & Hindu mantras, original songs in Hindi and a special cover of Fred Gillen Jr’s sing-along song ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’.
All proceeds from any album sales will go directly towards their Nepal efforts. Much more information about past, current and future projects can be found on their website: www.solarpunch.org
