Born in the village of Fyrish, near Corentyne, the eldest of three children and son of a school teacher, Gajraj began performing at the age of 5 with the Dil Bahar Orchestra. He learned to play the harmonium and drums, and went on to work with the Star Rhythm Combo, the Original Pioneers, and the Melody Makers, before working as a teacher in his 20s at a high school in Georgetown.
In the late 1980s, inspired by Sundar Popo and the increasing popularity of chutney, he decided to pursue a career in music, and he relocated to New York. After initially working as part of local bands, he launched a solo career in 1990, releasing the album Soca Lambada, which brought him immediate success. He had a local hit in 1992 with "Tun Tun Dance", and followed it with his third album, Guyana Baboo & Pack Up: New York, split with David Ramoutar, which was also a success, 'Guyana Baboo' being synonymous with Gajraj ever since.
His popularity spread to Trinidad & Tobago, where he performed at the Trinidad Spektakula festival and appeared on national television. In 1995 he became the first Guyanese artist to perform at the T&T carnival.
Between 1990 and 2000 he release a total of 14 albums.
In 2009 he collaborated with Dheeraj Gayaram on the stage show West Indian Dreams.
In 2015 he was nominated in the 'Male Soca Chutney Artiste of the Year' category at the International Soca & Chutney Awards.
