Cheema Ram is a young folk musician from a small hamlet called ‘Saroope ka Talla’ in Chohtan district, Rajasthan. It is merely a couple of kilometers away from the Pakistan border. His father is a poet, and writes about man and nature’s wonders. Cheema Ram is just 25 years old, but even at this young age, he has great interest in devotional and spiritual music, and plays tandoora. When he used to go to ‘Satsanga’ with his family and friends as a child, he became curious about the hymns and their meaning and effect in one’s life. This stirred his interest in this genre of music, and he started learning initially from cassette tapes of famous bhajans. Then he self-trained himself by practicing rigorously and taking guidance from other artists who are competent in this genre. He has been performing with his group professionally since the past eight years. Cheema Ram hails from the Meghwal community which is considered as one of the most distinguished and competent communities who are into devotional music. The ‘Rikhiya’ tradition of presenting bhajans at ‘Satsanga’ has been passed on through generations in the Meghwal community. Cheema Ram’s parents always support and motivate him in his pursuit of becoming an established bhajan artist. He has three children, who also learn music from him and his group. His eldest child is Neeraj who is 5 years old, then there is Kuldeep and a 2 year old girl Kumud. Cheema Ram finds his bhajans full of peace and knowledge, and believes that the soul can attain salvation with the power of bhajans.
