Remembring Narayan Gopal two decades after his death

Even after his death 20 years ago, Nepali modern music and singing still misses the voice and music of Narayan Gopal.

Narayan Gopal died on December 5 of 1990 (19 Mangsir, 2047 B.S.) at 9 p.m. in Bir Hospital Kathmandu, at an age of fifty-one. He was suffering from diabetes but wouldn't follow strict dietary rules.

After his death, no other Nepali singer has been such a versatile singer. Narayan Gopal was also the first generation of Nepali singers who took music as a profession. Wide range of his voice range allowed him to sing songs of every genre of Nepali music.
