Kalyaan Khan is a very interesting personality. He is just 16 years old and can play almost all the folk instrument that he has come across. Currently, he is serving as a dholak player in the group. Besides that, he can also play Harmonium khartaal , Dhol. He started singing folk music at the mere age of six years, and there has been no looking back since then. At the age of 12 years, he started adding various folk instruments to his skill-set, and is still learning. He got inspired from the people who used to come to his village from outside to perform. He felt that they themselves should perform the folk music rather than getting people from outside to perform. So he started learning the instruments along with singing.
He along with his Father has taught Khartaal to one Spanish man, who resided with them for three months. His Biggest achievement is that despite being illiterate he uses social media like facebook & youtube which was taught to him by the Spanish Folk music student. Now Kalyaan Khan uses social medium as a medium of learning & has become a very tech-savy person. He wishes if he could have studied a little, he might have understood using the Internet better. His father works for Gunsar Lok Sangeet School, which is setup by Rajasthani Folk artist Bax Khan. He also goes there along with his father in the evening and does Riyaaz regularly as a routine.
Kalyan Khan loves listening to Nusrat Fateh ali khan’s Qawwalis and considers him as his idol. He loves Sufi singing and practices it more regularly. His favourite raga is Raga Kalyan, . Currently, he is happy with the money that he is earning, and wishes to continue with this profession only.
