Raju Lama’s musical journey commenced in his early years when he embarked on singing during his primary schooling despite lacking access to musical instruments. Driven by an innate passion for music, he absorbed inspiration from a television show at a friend’s house, memorized lyrics, and honed his skills through self-practice.

Drawing profound inspiration from esteemed figures like the late Arun Thapa and Aruna Lama, Raju Lama’s talent soon garnered widespread recognition. Encouraged by a school teacher, he briefly attended music classes at Sadhana Kala Kendra. However, balancing academic pursuits alongside his musical aspirations proved challenging, leading him to discontinue formal music education after a month.

The band’s commercial debut in 1993, featuring Raju Lama as the lead vocalist, marked the beginning of a remarkable journey. At the tender age of 14, their inaugural album “Soltini” (1994) catapulted them into the spotlight.

Despite briefly considering alternative career paths, including aspirations to join the British army or pursue a technical profession, Raju Lama’s unwavering dedication to music steered him towards a different trajectory. The release of their sophomore album “Mongolian Heart” in 1997 further solidified their standing, earning them widespread acclaim.
