A three year old child, Atithi KC, has released an album titled â€˜Atithi’ in a program organized in Kathmandu. The album was released by the hand of the top musician of Nepal, Ambar Gurung.
In the program organized by Arbit Publication, Ambar Gurung told that he was impressed by the songs of the little girl. Atithi’s father and the owner of Arbit Publication, told that it is the first time such a small child has released an album in the world. He is planning to apply for a Guinness World Record.
The 3 year and 8 months old singer has compiled nine songs in the album named after her own name. Atithi’s father told that she started talking at the age of 6 month and walking at 8 months.
In the program she sang the National Anthem â€˜Sayau thunga ful ka hami â€¦’ along with two other songs from her album. Last year she had sung a song for the prime minister of that time, Puspa Kamal Dahal, and she had also appeared in a number of other live programs.
One of the song, Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni â€¦, is also made into a music video by director Dabbu Chhetri.
Good job Atithi!

Atithi KC, the youngest singer in the world
Atithi Gautam KC recently did a live performance, singing three songs from her recently released album named ‘Atithi’. What is more interesting is that, Atithi is a 3 year-old-toddler, who is seeking to get in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest singer in the world.
In the following video, Atithi KC is singing Nepali National Anthem, “Saayau Thunga Ful ka Hami…” live in her music album release ceremony.
Posted below is the first music video of the little girl and two other live performances:
Song– Sa Re Ga Re Ga …
Singer – Atithi Gautam KC
Album – Atithi
Music – Joogle Dangol
Choreographer – Gambhir Bista
Director – Dabbu Kshetri
I found that Atithi’s closest contender in the world record is Cleopatra who released her album on August 20, 2006 at the age of 3 years, 10 months, and 14 days. The age of Athithi is not independently verified till date. If her father is to be believed she is 3 years and 8 months old, and is the youngest singer in the world.
