Kutle 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 future generations. Kutle hails from Khelana village of Jaisalmer district.
Kutle has been learning music since the age of 10 and began to learn from his guru, Hasam Khan. Most people in this community begin learning music as a child and master more than one traditional instrument during their lifetime. Similarly, Kutle started learning music with the help of Harmonium as well as the vocal ability and now mastered the Harmonium. Along with the group of musicians lead by Mushtaq Khan he has performed in almost all districts of Rajasthan and a lot of cities in the country.
Due to a lack of latitude in the field of folk music within the state and the country, these artists have to resort to other jobs in order to earn a livelihood for their families. Currently, at the age of 32, Kutle 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.
