AROGYA is the first Dark Synth Rock act from Northeast India and been active in the music scene since the year 2014. At the cutting edge of a unique darkwave genre blending dark synth with modern rock and heavy metal, the band has created deep, powerful and genuine music, bringing a new exciting flavour to the arena.
AROGYA first started out as an independent avant-garde Nepali Arena Rock band with 2 self-titled original albums under their belt. AROGYA has since evolved in their song writing and composition style, coming up with a new 3rd album in English under the German record label Out of Line Music. Together with German producer and vocalist of Lord of the Lost, Chris Harms, they set out to create a new sensory experience for the audience. The result is a new sound with fusion of modern rock elements, electronic, pop, metal and industrial which is very different from what can be found in the current music scene.
AROGYA also developed a distinct identity with emphasis on Visual appeal and Theatrical vibe through their visual kei concept, dynamic stage presence and high energy performances with unbreakable will. The band has appeared in many large festivals all over India as well as on mainstream media of all kind, in newspapers and magazines, national and international radio and television channels.
AROGYA in Sanskrit means healer and their music aims to heal the broken, to lift the spirit and to be a balm to the soul. AROGYA’s songs themes are inspired by personal experiences and social issues faced daily like depression, suicide, about reality, humanity, love and war; every lyric trying to spread messages & awareness, to reach out to the masses. AROGYA is constantly evolving and with ever-growing motivation, the band intends to continue its ascension, aiming for new heights and will keep delivering its music with world class production.

Since 2013, Gangtok’s rock band Arogya have steadily built a following in the North East and in Nepal, with songs like “Mero Maya Ma” climbing up to over 226,000 views on YouTube last year. They showcased metal, rock and more on their 2016 self-titled album, but now things are changing yet again.
Their debut English single “Dark World” presents Arogya as an anthemic synth rock band, led by vocalist Rainjong Lepcha’s distinct range. Lepcha, who also sings for Guwahati metallers Rectified Spirit, says, “The main challenge is to keep it simple yet exciting, dynamic and fresh. We want to create a new sensory experience, strive ahead in the music industry with something different and stretch our musical capabilities but yet not losing the sound we have developed over the years.”
Gangtok-bred, Assam-based rock band Arogya offer up a tantalizing new visual world with their latest song “Broken,” the first off their upcoming third album.
Featuring the band in its steampunk-inspired avatars (complete with masks and a hanging mic stand for vocalist Rainjong Lepcha), the song juxtaposes buoyant synth work with polished riffage over pained vocals. The video — directed by filmmaker Prayash Sharma Tamuly — introduces a fantasy world in which two lovers are lost and separated, with the male protagonist (essayed by actor Arghadeep Barua) journeying to find his missing companion (Annie Hazarika).
The concept of the video and screenplay was the brainchild of frontman Lepcha and lyricist and band manager Janice Teh.
