About the Artists : 
Manganiar community has represented the essence of folk music of western Rajasthan. They majorly inhabit the areas of Jaisalmer and Barmer districts of Rajasthan. Manganiar are hereditary musicians by caste common to both Rajasthan and Sindh (Pakistan). They, though Muslims, had often performed for their erstwhile Hindu patrons who spoke Marwari and Sindhi. They render life cycle songs during childbirth, wedding and other ceremonies. This interesting inter community and cultural harmony has resulted in a mesmerizing musical tradition.

An interesting string instrument which they play while singing Mānd is known as Kamaicha. The instrument is exclusively played in Rajasthan and some other parts of Sindh in Pakistan. It is accompanied by rhythmic instruments like Dholak and Khadtal. Their musical compositions are very complex and have improvisatory rules build into it. Virtuoso rhythm playing has largely added to their success in music. Their repertoire also consist of popular poetic folktales for instance the stories of Umar-Marvi, Moomal-Ranoo, Noori-Jam Saichi, Sassi-Punnu, Laila-Majnu, Leela-Chanesar, Sorath-Rao Khanghar, Heer-Ranjho, Sohni-Meher and Jasma-Odan and compositions of several great Sindhi Sufi saints like Bulleh Shah, Shah Latif, Shah Bhitai, Roial Sai, Kalander etc.

Shri Kachra Khan is an acclaimed singer of the Manganiar community of western Rajasthan. His training started at a very young age of five years under his father Shri Dhaula Khan. His repertoire includes songs based on local folklore, the Sufi songs of Rajasthan, as well as the ‘Sufi Kalams’ of famous poets of the Sindh region.
