Born on 12 August 1949 in Pauri Village nearby Pauri town in Pauri Garhwal District (Uttarakhand), Negi started his career in Pauri
Negi started his music career by releasing "Garhwali Geetmala". These Garhwali Geetmalas came in ten different parts. As these Garhwali Geetmalas were from different companies he was finding it difficult to manage them. So he finally switched into releasing his cassettes by giving them separate titles. His first album was titled Buraans, after a flower found in the hills. He has sung over 1000 songs.
He has also given his voice in Garhwali movies such as Chakrachal, Gharjawai, and Meri Ganga Holi Ta Maima Aali.
Although he mostly composes his music in the folk genre, his lyrics depict a huge range of anxieties, tensions and human insights of the people of Uttarakhand. 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 hits.
