In the beginning in 2002, I was involved with the band “Tantra” as a vocalist. Then I did many programs in various hotels with Attar Band. I have worked around three to four years with those two bands. Then in 2006 I did my first recording of my song titled “Man Manai Maan Paraune” with the studio arrangement. After that I continually did lots of recordings of my songs. At the same time I took part in the program called “Timor Swor Mero Geet” on Nepal Television and then I got 2nd position in it. Similarly, in 2007 I also took part in the KATH 97.9 FM program called “Swor Sangam” and I got 1st position.

After that I composed many songs for different singers like Karma Sherpa the top 14th winner of ZTV “Sare Ga Ma Pa” and I am very glad to give my compositions to them.
