Until three decades ago, Motilal Gayak from Baglung used to travel from village to village, singing songs of tragedies and separation in the sounds of a sarangi, a kind of a fiddle. He did not give up his ancestral profession as a gandharva (the singer) even until he breathed his last at the age of 75.

While he would roam around singing, the villagers would not only just get news, but his presence would also pull the crowd creating a musical environment with him singing songs of tragedies.
