Devu Khan 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.Devu hails from Khelana village of Jaisalmer district.
Devu Khan has been learning music since the age of 10 and began to learn from his family members. Most people in this community begin learning music as a child. Similarly, Devu started learning singing. Along with the group of musicians lead byHaape Khan, he has performed in almost all districts of Rajasthan.
Due to a lack of opportunities in the field of folk music within the state and the country, these artists remain hidden. Currently, at the age of 12, Devu 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.
