Madanram is an experienced musician who plays Ghadha and Manjira. At the age of 58, he lives in Jaisalmer district and has been learning music for over two decades. He leads a family of eight people out of which seven are his children; 4 boys and 3 girls. His daughters have not had the privilege of attending school and getting started with their education.
Madanram is the only person in his family who is interested in playing and learning music and started learning quite late i.e. after the age of 30 only through observing and analyzing people who used to play their cultural and traditional melodies. He is quite familiar with various ‘Raags’ and ‘Taals’ that are used in the local folk music of the region.
He earns around 50-60 Thousand rupees on a yearly basis through his crop plantations and has not yet been able to turn his musical talents into a substantial source of income, which he hopes to do in the future.
