BBC lists Nepal third in ‘Rio 2016: The most amazing national anthems’

- GARIMA CHAULAGAIN, Kathmandu

Aug 10, 2016-BBC has listed Nepal in the third position in its list of the most amazing national anthems at the Rio Olympics 2016.

Russia tops the list in the Rio 2016: The most amazing national anthems followed by Myanmar, and Nepal in the third place.

‘Nepal’s isn’t your usual anthem. It doesn’t try to sound like a military march or a church hymn. Instead it sounds like a joyous Nepali pop song, the sort of music you hear blaring out of taxis in Kathmandu. It’s the only anthem normally played on a Casio keyboard, and it is so happy it’s somewhat unsettling to learn it was the product of a Maoist revolution,’ the report reads.

The other countries that saved a place in Alex Marshall’s list of the most amazing national anthems are Israel, Kazakhstan, Brazil, China, Mauritania Democratic Republic of Congo and Paraguay.
