This data set contains 8 audio files (all in Part 1, DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3380191) and 48 video files (32 in Part 1, DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3380191, and 16 in this part) of the interviews held with the last two known Kusunda speakers from Nepal, Gyani Maiya Sen Kusunda and Kamala Khatri (Sen Kusunda), on August 3rd, 2019, in Kathmandu, Nepal.
