The global ambassadors of Rajasthani folk music are back in Delhi! Barmer Boys are the next generation of performers that carry forward the centuries-old musical traditions of the Manganiyars and are leading examples of contemporary folk and Sufi music. The trio are led by Manga ‘Mangey’ Khan (vocals, harmonium) with the twin percussive punch of Rais Khan (morchang, bhapang, khartaal, beat-boxing) and Tarif Khan (dholak). The band’s versatility of styles and bubbling energy infuses each performance – from soulful Sufi kalaams to uplifting wedding and celebratory songs, songs of love and remembrance, to boisterous jams with beat-boxing and live DJsets. The group made their international debut in 2014 with shows at Roskilde Festival 14, Borneo World Music Expo 14, a US debut with a coast-to-coast tour in April 14, and have been wooing audiences on television screens, cinema halls and festivals in India including MTV CokeStudio Season 3, NH7 Weekender 14, IIT Mood Indigo 14 and Jaipur Literature Festival 15.
