A friend in Banepa posted a lovely renditon of Nepal’s National Anthem and after listening to it, I googled the composer … who I find passed away after an illness just yesterday.
Amber Gurung was an accomplished composer, singer and songwriter beloved by Nepalis. The Kathmandu Post published this announcement. May he Rest In Peace.
I bet many of you have never heard Nepal’s National Anthem, so here’s your chance now.
