Formed in 1997,Sukarma is Nepal's most sought-after folk-classical outfit comprised of three talented instrumentalists. In the words of Professor Abhi Subedi "the musicians of Sukarma are the walking museum." The commonality among the instrumentalists of this musical group is that they belong to the illustrious gharana (home) of music who have been playing for generations. Sukarma, as the word refers to as "good deeds" upholds a two-fold philosophy. Firstly, the musicians devote themselves to the music by celebrating it as a symbol of their Sukarma. And secondly, they endeavour to instill the classical music in the young generations.
