Learning about a culture means so many things. You can learn about customs, festivals, foods, traditions, etiquette, language and so much more. But often, people forget to think about music when visiting a country. Most cultures in the world have their own unique sound and Nepal is no different. Below are some of my favorite Nepali songs which consists of traditional songs as well as contemporary Nepali artists. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments!
