Navneet Aditya Waiba was born of parents Hira Devi Waiba (mother) and Ratan Lal Aditya (father) and was raised in the hill town of Kurseong in Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. Waiba grew up in a musical environment owing to her mother and grandfather Sri Singh Man Waiba who also happened to be her mother's musical mentor/coach.
After the demise of her mother Hira Devi Waiba in 2011, Navneet Aditya Waiba started singing to keep the family's musical legacy alive. Her brother Satya Aditya Waiba and Navneet work as a team to revive, protect and popularize traditional Nepali Folk Music.
The brother and sister duo re-arranged and re-recorded Hira Devi Waiba's songs and in 2015 they handpicked Hira Devi Waiba's most iconic and popular songs. They named the album 'Ama Lai Shraddhanjali - Tribute to Mother' and released it on 3 November 2017 at the historic venue, Patan Museum in Kathmandu, Nepal.
"I would like to inspire the younger generation to go back to the roots we belong to. I feel that the songs will bring back those memories." -Navneet Aditya Waiba
