Ayub is an artist in the folk music spectrum of Rajasthan. He belongs to the Manganiyar community which has a history of passing on their musical talents down to the future generations. Ayub hails from Baiyya village of Jaisalmer district.
Ayub has been learning music since the age of 8 and began to learn from his father who is also his guru, Laale Khan. Most people in this community begin learning music as a child and master more than one traditional instrument during their lifetime. Similarly, Ayub started learning music with the help of Khartal as well as vocals, and now mastered his vocal. Along with the group of musicians lead by Kheta he has performed in almost all districts of Rajasthan and Delhi.
Due to a lack of financial growth in the field of folk music within the state and the country, these artists have to find other jobs in order to earn a livelihood for their families. Currently, at the age of 19, Ayub aspires to make an impact on the livelihoods of the people in the community through his craft through more opportunities to showcase the art form he is inordinately passionate about.
