He started his musical career in 1990 with the band “The Steel Wheels” as the vocalist and rhythm guitarist. After the band disbanded, he pursued a solo career. He was able to capture the attention of many Nepali music-lovers with his first released song ‘Aankhama Timilai’. After the huge success of his first album, he has recorded eleven more albums from 1990 till date.
Nabin K Bhattarai is considered to be the first real pop-star and unarguably one of the greatest pop singers of the country with an enormous fan following. Bhattarai’s earlier songs have a melodic style to them, depicting the loneliness of a young lover. Many of his compositions after the album “Nabin” mostly include the elements of rock in them, which was positively received by the Nepali audience.
Here’s a video of Nabin playing a solo guitar of the song ‘Time’. This song is one of the hit of Pinkfloyd from the album Dark side of the moon. Watch it out!
