At Home: Sakar Khan (AMAR 006) CD | mp3

Single take recordings at home in Hamira, Rajasthan 
(released November 2012 in India, April 2013 US/Benelux)

Padma Shri Sakar Khan (1938-2013), from the village of Hamira in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer district, was one of the great folk musicians of India. His instrument - the ‘kamancha’ (or kamaicha, kamaycha, kemancheh) - traces its roots back to the 8th century. A bowed lute with a goat skin sound box and three main gut strings with 14 sympathetic metal strings, it harks back to the lost bowed Raba'ab of Arabia, and perhaps further, in terms of both geography and time. Accompanying him on this album are his sons Ghewar, Firoze and Dara.

At Home: Barmer Boys (AMAR 008) CD | mp3

Single take recordings at home in Ramsar, Rajasthan 
(released December 2012 in India, April 2013 US/Benelux)

Featured on Season 3 of Coke Studio on MTV India, Barmer Boys represent the next generation of folk from India. Folk with attitude. 21st Century folk. Barmer Boys are a trio led by the vocal powerhouse of Mangey Khan and percussive antics of Rais Khan (morchang, bhapang, khartal, beat-boxing). Barely in their 30’s, and yet seasoned performers, they carry forward the centuries-old musical tradition of the Manganiyars and are leading examples of Rajasthani folk and Sufi music. Their music is a harmonic blend of distinct performance styles and personalities, and melds Sufi, qawwali and folk traditions of the Indian sub-continent.

Live at the 2011 Amarrass Desert Music Festival (AMAR 005) CD | mp3

Featuring Vieux Farka Toure, Lakha Khan, Nihal Khan, Madou Sidiki Diabate, Barmer Boys
(released September 2012 in India, April 2013 US/Benelux)

The Amarrass Desert Music Festival of 2011, recorded in the shadow of New Delhi’s ancient Siri Fort, captures both the quiet contemplation of Madou Sidiki Diabaté’s kora music, and the boisterous celebration of the Barmer Boys’ qawwali music. That all these styles come from the same sandy roots is clear in the final track, when Diabate, Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touré and Rajasthani masters Lakha Khan, Dane Khan and the Barmer Boys take the stage together for one last jam
