Robin came to prominence in Nepal in the early 1990s.

Robin and The New Revolution began to gain a following in the early 1990s as they blended modern rock with Nepali folk music. After the band's success, Robin also released solo music, including his 2003 album "Mero Euta Sathi Cha," which was met with substantial acclaim when it was initially released. Robin followed up that effort with additional solo albums, including one that was named after the country he called home.

Robin collaborated with a number of other prominent Nepali musicians and international artists over the course of his career, including Adrian Pradhan, Shreya Sotang, and Kutumba.

In addition to his musical work, Robin was also widely known for his contributions to the Nepali film industry. Robin primarily worked as a voiceover artist, and his skill as a singer made him a natural fit for those kinds of roles.

Robin worked throughout his career to be a kind of cultural ambassador for Nepal, and attempted to spread the music and culture of his country around the world. He did this by taking part in a wide array of music festivals, and he was also involved in various philanthropic efforts throughout his career. Typically, these efforts were focused on the environment and education.

Robin was actually born in Singapore.

Although Nepal was Robin's home for the second half of his life, he didn't actually move to the country until the mid-1990s. His father was a British army officer, which explains why he traveled so much around the Asia-Pacific region.

Following the news of Robin's death, many mourned his loss, in large part because of the art that he brought to the world.

“Robin dai is no more with us. We only met a couple of weeks ago and he'd told us how he's changed his lifestyle because he felt he was getting old. We told him he'd remain forever young. That's how we'll always remember him. Forever young Robin dai," one person wrote on social media.

Robin's loss is one that will be felt by fans of his music from all over the world.
