Kathmandu, Aug 8: Famous Nepali singer Deepak Bajracharya’s latest song ‘Man Magan’ has already become a big hit. As its popularity grew, musician Bajracharya launched the Nepal Bhasa version of Man Magan on Monday.
“I am planning to remake this song in different languages, and I started from my mother tongue, Nepal Bhasa,” he said. “My wish is to have the world dance to the tune of Nepali music.”
In this song, he has used original ethnic Nepal musical instruments.
So also for the promotion of Nepali music and instruments, we are remaking this song in foreign languages, he added.
I want to show unique Nepali musical instruments in the international music market. My aim is to preserve and promote Nepali ethnic instruments, music and culture through my songs.
