Though there is no denial to the fact that India today houses a highly modernized society, but we are still connected to our roots. Be it in terms of authentic traditional Indian cuisines or traditional Indian music.

New Delhi (I-Newswire) January 16, 2014 - Though there is no denial to the fact that India today houses a highly modernized society, but we are still connected to our roots. Be it in terms of authentic traditional Indian cuisines or traditional Indian music. Perhaps that is why folk singers like Mame Khan still exist with their influential voice. Considering the dedication of this musician in the field of traditional music, Songdew has honored him as the Featured Artist of the Month.

Mame Khan - Perhaps Musicians by Birth

Some artists are trained, and some are just born, Mame Khan certainly belongs to the later league. Born in a musical family, the singer in his very childhood got connected with the Manganiyar community. He got training under his late father Ustad Rana Khan, who himself was one of the best folk singers in India. Another person who trained him was his uncle. He was certainly blessed with the best teacher, who made him win the ICCR scholarship for musical training at the tender age of 14. Further, owing to the training, today he has spread the charm of Manganiyar Folk Music (which includes songs for every occasion of life) and Sufi Songs all across the globe.

Be it a Rajasthani Sufi songs or Manganiyar songs, the voice of Mame Khan has infused life in both. When he performs, he sets the stage on fire. He has also spread his charm in various Bollywood flicks and was recently seen performing with Amit Trivedi on MTV Coke Studio Season2. Some of his top spell binding songs include Mast Qualandar, Chaudary, Berlo and Krishna Bhajan.

Spreading the folk music across the geographical boundaries
Yes, Mame Khan is an India based folk and Sufi singer, but his music is spread across the globe. From Europe to Africa, from America to the Gulf Countries, he has casted his magical spell everywhere. He is the lead vocalist of the famous Manganiyar Seduction by Roysten Able. The list of his achievements doesn't end here, various popular Bollywood flicks like "No one killed Jessica", "Luck By Chance - Baware" and "I Am", were graced by his voice. Further, the Surilo Rajasthan 2 (which will be held on 29th January, 2014) has announced to honor the artist with 'Rajasthan Sangeet Ratna'.
