Nepali Folk Songs

By | May 7, 2012

Many years ago I have written about Nepal and Nepal where I have tried
to share about Folk Songs of Nepal via my old so-called mobile mini wap
site. (url: nepalnepali.webs.com). Today I would like to introduce the
world with few Nepali folk songs.
Nepali folk songs have been developed into professional duel folk songs.
Some examples of folk songs are as follows:

# Tamang Sello (Children song)

Chorkhi syauri gyalmari,
Gengla tukra saparari,
Geng tukrata syauri,
Dhuike lji chayago.

# Jhyaure Song

Lekako pani besiko dhan mechiya chiya kalika paan,
Aajak naani bholika saan gaunchhau eutai rastrya gaan,
Shantika geet gunji rahun bajyo ni mitho dhoon,
Balbalika dhartika jun…

# Purbeli Song

Dhindhin Madal Kaha Bajyo Koshi Kinarama,
Ke Chha Ke Chha Sannani Hamro Nidharama,
Madal Bajda Bhai-Bhaini Khari Rankeko,
Uttar Herda Bhai-Bhaini Himal Talkeko.

#Hori Song (Tarai people sing in Holy
festival)

# Teej Song (Women sing in Teej Festival)

Aama lina pathauchhin baba lina pathauchhin,
Malai lina bhare dajai aauchhan barilai…
Maila khane dar aama mitho gari pakaulin,
Naira gayea aama kati rolin barillai…

# Palam Song (Limbu sing in dhan naach)

Jetha aambu pak me mana,
Charan jioo aamk aamk,

# Deuad Song

Malika Dhuramiko Sallo Ho Ki Dallo,
Suwaki Ghar Jhangya Bata Tallo Ho Ki Mallo,
Jhun Jhunya Barapu lagyo katya bata darki,
Esai din gai jhanya hun ki pharki.
