Rahim Khan is a young and upcoming 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. Rahim hails from Satto village of Jaisalmer district.
Rahim has been learning music since the age of 6. Most people in this community begin learning music as a child and master more than one traditional instrument during their lifetime. Similarly, Rahim started learning music with the help of Harmonium as well as his vocal ability and now mastered Harmonium.
Due to a lack of opportunities 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. Rahim, at such a youthful age, 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.
