Dilip Nath Kaalbaliya is 24 and hails from Jodhpur. As the tradition goes, music has been passed on to him by his ancestors and his mother Mohini Devi. He plays manjeera and khadtaal and has been learning since childhood. He has studied till 12th standard and had to leave his education because of financial restrictions in his family. Most of the concerts in which he performs are brought to them by mediators who coordinate with the organizers. A part of the income goes to these middlemen, and hence, he feels that there is a strong need for the folk musicians to be aware and more technologically inclined. He feels that there should be websites so that people can directly contact their groups for concerts. He has performed all over India and Internationally, he has performed in Poland. In the future, he wants to provide well for his mom and dad and wants to provide musical education to his children as well.
