Wherever he performs, the vibrato in Khan’s voice seems to travel all the way from the sand dunes of Thar desert in Rajasthan and enthrall the entire arena of the show. For this 42-year-old Rajasthani folk singer, who has been performing with his tribe of folk singers, the Langhas, for the past 16 years, fusion is the way he could reach out to more contemporary audience. He wishes to take the folk music by his group to such a level that it is being recognized in the whole world. Born to Langhas, a Rajasthani musician clan whose ancestors have been supported by landlords and aristocrats for generations, Khan grew up listening to his father’s riyaaz. Khan’s natural gifts are indisputable. His passion for singing and harmonium playing is manifest in the way he maintains harmonies, rhythms and in sustaining the grace of his instrument and voice throughout, while accompanying other vocalists and instrumentalists. There is humility, work ethic, talent and a brilliant vocal range. But the going hasn’t been easy; there are limitations he’s had to overcome, and most of them have been financial.
