Nepali music enthusiasts are celebrating the 27th death anniversary of Narayan Gopal, who is also popularly called Swar Samrat (The King of Vocals). Narayan Gopal had died at the age of 51 on December 5, 1990.
Here we have five pictures depicting the legend’s life and times. The pictures are from an exhibition of photographs of the maestro, held at the Nepal Art Council, Babarmahal in February 2016.
Here is our pick of the photos on display at the exhibition.
Narayan Gopal’s songs such as Yeti dherai maya diyi.. make you think about the life and love. The singer himself used to put a lot of thought into what he’d lend his voice to.
Another star of Nepali music Gopal Yonjan, was a close friend of Narayan Gopal. Can you spot the Swar Samrat in his photo?
Narayan Gopal did not just have ordinary fans. In 1989, when Gopal had fallen ill, Ganesh Man Singh and his wife came to visit.
Narayan Gopal not only sang duets with Nepali artists, but also with international ones. If you’ve heard of Mohani lagla hai… that’s one of the songs Narayan Gopal and Asha Bhosle sang.
Narayan Gopal was a popular figure among his friends. He would often sing for them, and they would encourage him to sing better than ever before.
