The musical journey of Mukut initially started with Roshan and Girish's first combined performance at a concert titled "Heart Attack" organized by the two of them in the year 2000. Later these two formed Mukut after a year while they were studying at Little Angels' School. There were a number of changes of band members since then. After three bassists and three drummers came and went, Mukut is finally comprised of Roshan Kunwar on the lead guitars, keyboards and backing vocals, Girish Subedi on the main vocals, rhythm guitar and mouth harmonica, Dona Gurung on the bass guitars, Surendra Koirala on the drums. David Shrestha also performs as a percussionist with Mukut on a regular basis. Sandesh Thapaliya has been contributing as Mukut's band manager for the past three years.

Roshan handles the band's event and recording deals, Girish is usually the media spokesman. Roshan and Girish usually write all the lyrics and compose the songs and the other band members arrange the songs together. Dona usually gets more involved in the whole process with Roshan and Girish. Finally, the musical output is refined over and over until the band members are satisfied. It has only been just over five months that drummer Surendra joined the band. Dona joined the band more than a year ago along with drummer Kumar Maharjan who left for Australia for further studies. Since Mukut claims to be a team-working band, it aims to give the audience new tastes of their original music each time they perform. The band is recently working with young and talented eastern artists from Nepal Sangeet Vidhyalaya who are just entering their teens. Currently all the band members are studying at Nepal Sangeet Vidyalaya. Dona was introduced to Mukut by Mukut's percussionist, David. His musical tastes quickly clicked and blended with that of Girish and Roshan. Kumar Maharjan was also introduced to Mukut just a few months before Dona.
Actually, Mukut have had lots of auditions with different players and finally stuck up with these musicians. When Kumar left for Australia, Mukut was ‘musically blocked’ for almost five months when finally Surendra Koirala was recruited as the new drummer. Since his arrival, Mukut has been involved in concerts related to kidney awareness with acclaimed singer Lochan Rizal. Mukut has altogether 14 recorded tracks of which nine of them are from their first album 'Marubhumi'. This title track is dedicated to the 12 Nepalese who were killed in Iraq a few years ago. Their two English numbers are featured in the documentary "Imagine Rainbow in Kathmandu". One of the songs got nominated in the 11th Hits FM Music Awards in the category of "Best song in a foreign language". They also performed with pop singers Nabin K Bhattarai and Udesh Shrestha at the award ceremony.
Mukut's memorable concerts include their gigs with Bombay Vikings at Dasrath Rangasala, ‘Mukut Live With Om Bikram Bista and Sugam Pokhrel’ at Kathmandu Mall (organized by Mukut), ‘Mukut Live at Tokha Kite Festival’ (Organized by Mukut), ‘Mukut Live at Bluestar Hotel (1st album launch-organized by Mukut), ‘Dashain Mahotsav’ at Bhrikutimandap, World cup final with live concert at the Vajra Hotel and many others... The Vajra Hotel by the way, has provided Mukut with their band practice room for the past two and half years for which Mukut is always grateful. Mukut intends to develop more into their scene of Eastern progressive rock music in the future.

The band is currently putting in all their efforts to raise funds for Miss Jaya Gurung who is just 21 years old and is suffering from the failure of both her kidneys. Mukut intends to tour schools and colleges with other popular artists such as Nabin K. Bhattarai, Udesh Shrestha, Salil Kanika and Lochan Rizal. This will also be a part of their health awareness program targeted towards the youth of the nation.
