I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Jayananda Lama (1956-2022), a remarkable figure in the field of Nepali arts. His departure is an incredible loss for the Nepali art sector, leaving a void that will be hard to fill.
Jayananda Lama, the senior folk singer and actor, breathed his last at his residence in Kaushaltar, Bhaktapur. His contributions to Nepali culture, especially through his super hit folk songs like "Kalakate Kainvo, Herda Ramro" and "Chuin Chuin Chuilkane Joota, Mulako Ghana," have left an indelible mark on our hearts.
Not only was he an influential folk singer, but he also showcased his versatile talent by acting in more than a hundred movies. The richness he brought to Nepali art and culture will be remembered and cherished by generations to come.
In this moment of grief, please accept my heartfelt condolences. May his soul rest in peace, and may you find strength and solace during this difficult time.
