LAKHA KHAN Live @ Lodi - The Garden Restaurant

Janamasthmi celebrations with Krishna Bhajans by Lakha Khan at the next edition of Amarrass Nights@Lodi, Saturday 27th August 2016. 


LAKHA KHAN (Rajasthan, India) - a living legend and the undisputed master of the sindhi sarangi, Lakha Khan is a national treasure. A Sangeet Natak Akademi award winner for his contribution to Rajasthani folk music, and perhaps the greatest exponent of the sindhi sarangi. He was born in the village of Raneri in Jodhpur district, Rajasthan, India into a family of traditional musicians from the Manganiyar community. He was trained at an early age by his father Tharu Khan and later, by his uncle Mohammad Khan, in rendering the compositions of the Multan school of Manganiyars. His first public performances were in the late 60's and 70's under the guidance of the late Komal Kothari, a highly regarded Indian historian and ethnomusicologist. Today, Lakha Khan is one of the last remaining Manganiyars to have mastered this complex instrument and to carry forward the centuries-old musical tradition of Rajasthani and Multani folk and Sufi music.
