External encroachment and distortion have entered folk music. Prime Minister Prachanda

Kathmandu. Prime Minister Dahal, while inaugurating the 7th Running Shield Duet Song Competition organized by the National Folk and Duet Song Academy Nepal on Saturday at Charaundi in Dhading, said that folk songs are popular in all languages, castes, and regions. Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has urged everyone to be aware of external encroachment and distortion in Nepali folk music. Prime Minister Dahal also urged that Nepali music should be serious about it as it has gone towards distortion.

Prime Minister Dahal mentioned that songs and music based on diverse originality have progressed very well and said, "The classical songs that have won the hearts of the audience are stuck in the minds, hearts, and tongues of Nepali people, but recently, national artists, who are famous for going 'viral' and increasing 'views', have become cultural There is a feeling that we are moving towards distortion; it is time for artists and the entire public to be aware of this.'

Saying that being 'viral' and being popular are not the same thing, Prime Minister Dahal mentioned that the meaning of 'viral' is not good because it means infectious spread. Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has said that folk songs are the common culture and property of all Nepalis.

Stating that there are complaints that some of the performances at public fairs are very vulgar and cannot be watched by family and friends together, Prime Minister Dahal urged the establishment and artists associated with them to discourage such activities.

"Folk literature has been expressed as the original tradition of the people for ages; folk song is the most successful genre as a major genre in folk literature," Prime Minister Dahal said. "Folk song presents the overall aspects of Nepalese life." He also said that the folk songs that have spread from Mechi to Mahakali in Nepal as well as outside Nepal are presented as the main theme of every culture, natural beauty, every incident of people's lives, and all the experiences of happiness and sorrow.

Prime Minister Prachanda stressed the need to protect the originality of folk songs, which is an important pillar of the national identity of Nepal, a country rich in multi-ethnic, multilingual, and multicultural countries. 

"Each country has its own folk culture; it has a distinct identity and importance," Prime Minister Dahal said. "Needs, geographical conditions, ethnic makeup, values, etc. determine the culture. Among the countries in the world with diverse cultures, Nepal is a country with ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity. There is strong integration and unity.'
