Group : Dan Singh and Party
Dan Singh is a 82 year old marvelous folk singer from Baldev Nagar in Barmer, Rajasthan. All his life he made sure that whatever he was doing, music was always the most important part. Music has always been consistent in his life, especially, bhajan in folk music. He being from a Rajput community, unlike other in his community, never left folk music. There are very few Rajputs in Rajasthan who are following the passion of music by living it. Dan Singh due to family pressure joined a job in the electrical department of an Organisation but the job also couldn’t keep him away from music. He always used to take out time for his bhajans. Whatever he knows today is being imbibed by him from his maternal uncle, who taught him everything about music. He has abundance of knowledge when it comes to raags, taal, etc. Dan Singh’s had no one in his family who are aware about musical knowledge. Today, Dan Singh sings all kinds of Bhajans, from Meera to Kabir, etc. and Dhungar Puri ji Maharaj being his favorite. Most amazing part is that he never learnt any of the bhajans by writing or memorizing them, yet he remembers them just by listening. He has been singing bhajan and playing Tandoora (Veena) since 50 years now. He has also taught his son these bhajans and Tandoora. The bhajans that he mostly sings are in heli, pyaari, sorath, dhamaal, etc. raagas.
