The three-day long music festival will see live performances from stalwarts of western Rajasthani folk music. Legends like Padmashri nominee Anwar Khan Manganiyar and Barkat Khan Chhatangar (State and National Awardee) will serenade audiences with folk songs that go back 200 years.


The proceeds from this event will be used to feed and provide proper COVID-19 healthcare to over 2000 folk artists

Prodigal talents like Sartaj Khan, Sarwar Khan, and Thanu Khan (the 7-year-old Sony Superstar singer) will leave you mesmerised with their renditions of traditional songs sung through the ages by Rajasthan's tribes. Apart from that, other legendary artists like Indian Idol singer Sattar Khan Langa, who was a part of the Salim-Sulaiman musical world tour as the lead singer, Maati Ke Laal and SaReGaMaPa's Roje Khan and Hayat Khan, Sindhi sarangi player Meherdin Langha, along with Kalbeliya performers, will present a unique rendition of their state's folk music and art through the concert.
