Makhan Singh is a 37 years old folk artist, who has been performing for 24 years now. He was as young as 13 when he gave his first Giddha performance. He learnt this art form from his father, who also used to perform Giddha actively in various shows. He developed an interest in Giddha since a very young age. He was introduced to Malwai Giddha group through some common friends, and he joined it thereafter. He was inspired by elders of his community, to carry forward the tradition of playing folk instruments, and spread happiness through the music. He plays ‘Sapp’, along with the Giddha group. He wants his children to know and learn about their rich art form, and he keeps indulging them in his family performances from time to time. He works at the forest department in Sangrur, Punjab.
