Raju Lama a man with a golden voice, heart throb of the millions and a dream prince of thousands of girls. The lead singer of Mongolian Heart is not a new name in the NE-POP (Nepali) music industry and he has been an idol for the music beginners. He attributes his sincerity, patience and dedication to his success. Till date he has performed more then four hundred shows home and abroad. About 60 songs have been recorded by him.
Born on 16th March, 1978 in Baruwa 1, Sunchaur of Sindhupakchowk to parents Sukhbir and Yangchun Lama, he moved over to Kathmandu with his sister at the tender age of five. In Kathmandu , he started his early education and completed his SLC from Siddhartha Vanasthali School . His school years were the formative years of his career as he performed many times at school shows, continuously drawing his inspiration form the veteran singer late Arun Thapa. His performance soon caught everyone's attention.
In his last years of school, he got together with similar minds in school and few other friends to form Mongolian Heart in 1992. Mongolian Heart started recording commercially in 1993 with Raju Lama on the vocals. “Solitni” their first album with 8 songs was released in 1994. “Baadaluma Luki Basne” was the highlight of the album which was an average seller.
Raju Lama once aspired to join the British Army, He also wanted to get into a technical line as a professional. However his passion for music and singing dragged him away from them. He gave up the idea and continued to strive for his passion. Working with the band, they released another album in 1997, titled "Mongolian Heart", which gave them their much needed platform to make Raju and his band what they are today. Then it was another one called "Mongolian Heart 2" in 1999, and yet another one, "Mongolian Heart 3" in 2002.
Music aside, this ever smiling Piscean loves to take photographs, make new friends, travel and visit places, which he gets to do quite a bit through his performances in various countries worldwide. He gives his sister Lhamu Lama all the credit to his success, name and fame. Nurturing him from the age of five, she has been his constant support is all his endeavors to what he is today.
Raju, a firm believer in God, is also actively involved in social work through Greenlife Buddhist Society Nepal , an ONG involved in social service and Nepal Tamang Art and Culture Centre.
His restaurant "Lhasa" in Thamel is a popular hangout for the young crowd of Kathmandu. One opportunity for them to know him up close and personal.
Currently, he's releasing his solo album "Donbo", and working on another title for Mongolian Hearts.
Who's into "MANGA" World, may know the japanese series "NANA", wich tells the story of two identically-named girls with very different personalities. Nana is a somewhat sickly high school girl unlucky in love, while NANA is a hard-headed independent young woman hoping to strike it big in a rock band.
