Padma Shri Lakha Khan, is a sarangi player and vocalist, and perhaps the greatest exponent of the sindhi sarangi. His first public performances were in the late 60's and 70's and today, Lakha Khan is one of the last remaining Manganiyars to have mastered this complex instrument and to carry forward a centuries-old musical tradition. A living legend, Lakha Khan is not only a virtuoso on the sarangi, he sings fluently in Sindhi, Punjabi, Hindi, Marwari and a variety of dialects, his knowledge and skill spanning the divide between folk and classical music.
He has performed extensively across Rajasthan and India, and internationally in the U.S. and Europe. In 2011, he performed at the Edinburgh Folk Music Festival and The Amarrass Desert Music Festival, and completed a 9 city US tour in April 2013. His album "At Home: Lakha Khan" - single take, acoustic recordings made at his home in Raneri, Rajasthan.
