Music career

His first album came with the title called "Buraans". Buraans is a well-known flower found on hills.

He has released most number of super-hit albums. He has also given his voice in many Garhwali movies like "Chakrachal","Gharjawai","Meri Ganga Holi Ta Maima Aali" etc. This renowned singer from Garhwal has sung more than 1000 songs till now.

Songs like 'naya zamana ka choron' which shows generational disparity, 'Bol Chitthi Kile Ni Bhezi' depicting the innocence of adolescent love and 'tehri doobhana lagyun cha' which shows the pain of people losing their homes because of the tehri dams are some of his many great hits.

He is widely considered as an inspirational figure in cultivating and popularizing the sounds and rhythms of Uttarakhand.
