Bhungar Khan Company

Information

Country:

India

Hailing from the obscure villages in western Rajasthan, is a musical tradition handed down from Persia and the Punjab for several centuries. This is the music of the Manganiyars – a community of Muslim court musicians whose royal patrons may have disappeared, but whose music lives on because the practitioners cannot live without it. It is complex and fluid. Bhungar Khan leads a formidable band with charismatic energy and intensity.
