The Himalayan "Singer Arun Karki's fourth album, Khusi, comes as a landmark in the history of Nepali music as it is the first solo album that music composer Sambhujeet Baskota has worked on. Karki himself was ecstatic when the famed music director agreed to his proposal of a solo album from him, and thus naming the album "Khusi" (joy)... All said and done, Khusi is a worthwhile album to add to your collection."
