Group: Chautha Khan and Group
Chauthe Khan is a Manganiyar musician from the Bodhar tribe. The tribe hails from Ugwa village located in Jaisalmer district. Currently, in his late twenties, Chauthe has already gained almost two decades of experience in learning music. He began to learn as an 8-year-old from his guru Mange Khan.
Chauthe Khan focuses his abilities to create and perform traditional Rajasthani folk songs which are sung on most auspicious occasions in the royal families as well as various festivals that are celebrated in the state on a seasonal basis. Most of the music is accompanied by their traditional dances. He has also developed a keen sense of knowledge and an open attitude towards learning the classical compositions of the country. Most of the classical compositions he likes to perform are based on Mada and Kalyan raga which he prefers because they are mostly played during the evening time.
Chauthe Khan usually performs at the Jaisanda Resort in Sam village but has made numerous appearances in different districts of Rajasthan as well as other cities in the country. He labels his performance in the city of Amravati in Maharashtra as the most memorable one. He wishes to make a substantial impact on the development and rise of folk music in the state of Rajasthan and believes in preserving the authenticity of the art form.
