Robin started off with Nepathya, when the band made its entrance in Nepali music scene back in 1990. As a singer of the band, he made his mark with songs like Bashat ko Mausan and Aaganai Bhari.

In 1996, he moved to Hong Kong and now lives there with his family.
He performed in live shows occasionally in Hong Kong with other Nepali artists, and did have a few singles released in the meantime.

Stanit, the album, is scheduled to be released in about two month's time from a new production company Samjhana Audio. It will have 11 new songs written and composed by the singer himself and arranged by Sunil Bardewa.
