Updated: October 17 2016 7:39 pm Renowned Rajasthani folk singer Mame Khan with Mirzya is slowly but surely establishing himself outside of the Manganiyar tribe of musicians Top News For many years Manganiyar musician Mame Khan’s life had followed a simple pattern: singing folk songs with others from his community at various local festivals and traditional events of his jajmaan (patrons) such as weddings and childbirth Till one day he was invited to sing at musician-actor Ila Arun’s daughter’s wedding “Someone spotted me singing with my group at Ila Arun ji’s daughter’s wedding and mentioned my name to Shankarji (Shankar Mahadevan composer-singer) So I went with the complete group because that’s how we mostly sing — together” says Khan But once in their studio in Mumbai Mahadevan gave him a basic structure and asked Khan to sing an alaap “I just sang whatever came to my mind” says Khan over a telephone conversation from Satto It would lead to Baawre in Zoya Akhtar’s film Luck By Chance (2009) a splendid track that fused an array of sounds and uniquely tweaked the concepts of qawwali and Rajasthani folk It would also be Khan’s first big ticket Bollywood hit WATCH VIDEO: Pakistani Film ”Jago Hua Savera” Dropped From Mumbai Film Festival: Here’s Why Cut to 2016 The vibrato in Khan’s voice in Doli re doli — a bidaai geet in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s upcoming film Mirzya seems to have travelled all the way from the sandunes of Satto a tiny village near Jaisalmer in Rajasthan to Purple Haze the recording studio in Bandra Mumbai where music composers Shankar Ehsaan and Loy make music Khan’s voice with its deceptive amplitude hits the high notes with ease before plummeting into lower octaves For the 36-year-old Rajasthani folk singer who has been performing with his tribe of folk singers the Manganiyars for the past 16 years Doli re doli is nothing short of a milestone — it has ushered him into the Bollywood big league “He is as talented as any of the current names today” says Mahadevan who got Khan to sing three tracks in Mirzya which is being considered one of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s finest outings in recent years “Some folk musicians are so deeply involved with what they normally sing that if we expose them to something new they get a little confused Mame can mould himself to suit different environments He’s got a folk voice adapts easily to Western music and has tremendous depth” says Mahadevan Born to Rana Khan Manganiyar a Rajasthani musician whose ancestors have been supported by landlords and aristocrats for generations Khan grew up listening to his father’s riyaaz “Manganiyar ka toh bachcha bhi sur mein rota hai (Even a Manganiyar’s baby cries in tune)” says Khan “I would play with the kamaincha dholak and khartaal; there was nothing else If my father was at home he was always singing and that’s what I imbibed If he was away he was trying to make both ends meet Women in our community don’t sing or play music but my mother was a skilled singer and would teach us bhajans she’d learnt in her family” he says The Manganiyars are a group of hereditary musicians who belong to a fringe Muslim community in Rajasthan Since the beginning of their musical tradition their patrons have been wealthy Bhaati and Rajput landlords and aristocrats The Manganiyars sing ditties of local maharajas of bygone battles and stories of gods and goddesses that have been passed down generations These songs are mostly in praise of Hindu deities and celebrate Lord Krishna “I can proudly say that in current times too Hindus and Muslims are closely bound to each other in our part of the world I sing of the Allah in my Sufi pieces and of Krishna in others My children celebrate Diwali and Holi while there are congratulatory messages from our Rajput patrons on Eid” says Khan who accompanied his father at many gatherings in his formative years He now teaches his music to his three children — a daughter and two sons “I’m also educating them in other disciplines But I want them to be known for their music like me” says Khan who is busy wrapping up a few recordings in Jaisalmer before he begins touring the country for the upcoming music festival season Mirzya Full Movie songs (Audio) Jukebox Before his songs in Mirzya established his talent as a playback singer validation had come from ace composer Amit Trivedi in Coke Studio @MTV sessions in 2015 Khan crooned two numbers — a traditional folk called Chaudhary and another titled Badri badariya where he collaborated with singer Mili Nair Then there were two pieces with popular fusion band Maati Baani at Sandstorm Festival in 2013; soon Khan began to frequent music festivals as a solo performer “He can understand what’s going on in a composer’s head So he delivers exactly what’s expected right then I only did two songs with him at the festival but the experience was very interesting” says Nirali Kartik one half of Maati Baani A slew of serendipitous encounters in Mumbai led him to meet theatre director Roysten Abel who included him in The Manganiyar Seduction one of his most ambitious projects Inspired by Amsterdam’s red-light district the stage is built up to four

including a performance at London’s Womad Festival (2012) Khan enjoys his solo status more “All musicians dream of going solo If one has the ability to move out expose oneself to other forms and finds a spot where one fits in then there is no stopping him This is exactly what Mame has done” says Mahadevan Khan’s natural gifts are indisputable There is humility work ethic talent and a brilliant vocal range But the going hasn’t been easy; there are limitations he’s had to overcome and most of them have been financial Last year the lack of funds led Khan to crowdfund an album with the Manganiyars — a first for them “As folk artistes we don’t know so much about these tech things But it was my dream to have an album Then someone told me I could have normal people as my jajmaan and have them help us raise money for an album which eventually would be given as a gift to them Earlier the rewards used to be elephants horses and gold This time it would be money to create our album” says Khan Also read |Mirzya movie review: Harshavardhan Kapoor Saiyami Kher’s romance fails to set screen onfire The result was Mame Khan’s Desert Sessions which included seven folk tracks “This

through collaborations with artistes from various parts of the country “If one has Mame’s talent and gets the right opportunity then finding success is inevitable He remains a Manganiyar at heart but he’s adapting to what the world today has to offer and paving the way for others in his community” says Mahadevan For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy Sundeep Misra The first time anybody had a glimpse of Sardar Singh and Ashpal Kaur Bhogal was at the 2012 London Olympics Half a kilometer away from the Games Village is the Westfield Shopping Centre a favourite haunt for the athletes As I picked up Richard Moore’s ‘Dirtiest Race in History’ at WH Smith on the ground floor of the mall I saw Sardar and Ash walk past Sardar fleetingly looked at the books displayed in the glass case outside saw me looking at him then slightly embarrassed with a half-smile looked away File picture of Sardar Singh and Ashpal Kaur Bhogal – ibnlive It was around 8pm in the evening and the Indian captain should either have been in bed or attending a team meeting But those were times of love Now six months short of four years as another Olympic Games loom Sardar’s life seems to have imploded Love is over Ash Kaur instead of sending love notes on Facebook has filed a police complaint in Ludhiana that the Indian hockey captain one of the world’s best midfielders has “sexually exploited her After promising to get married he has dumped her” In the same complaint she writes that she underwent an abortion in 2015 and even then “Sardar had promised to marry her” In fact everything seemed okay at The Hague in 2014 when India played the World Cup with Sardar as captain Ash was seen at the stadium cheering when India played their matches and in a chat said “I really admire him as a player” After the match against Malaysia Ash ran across the second pitch outside the main stadium and kissed him on the cheek Sardar seemed embarrassed But love seemed to be blossoming It was a perfect match Ash had played junior hockey for England becoming the first Sikh woman to wear England colours But a knee injury had robbed her of moving up the ladder Then Sardar happened and she found a soul-mate who not only played her position midfield but was also captaining India her country of origin By the middle of 2015 things seemed to be purring along for both of them She seemed completely taken up with Sardar going for tournaments and even coming to India for short visits Sardar’s family too seemed fine Ash was smart; her accented British English endeared her to the rest of the players She was after all the captain’s partner – his would-be wife Not known to many the relationship crashed in Belgium when India were playing the World Hockey League semifinals at Antwerp I remember getting a text from her asking me to bring along an edition of The Caravan which published a story in which I had written that the Indian captain was the ‘Last of the great Sardars’ I couldn’t fly to Belgium cancelling my ticket a few hours before the flight Half-way through the tournament I was chatting with one of the support staffs on fitness and other issues in the Indian camp when he said the captain is having problems with his girlfriend I laughed it off saying “Sardar must be stressed about the tournament” But when he said the management had to step in I was puzzled and intrigued Ash had arrived in Antwerp and there had been an argument in which Sardar allegedly had a scrap with her Apparently an angry and humiliated Ash decided to take matters in her own hands before the management did a firefight to handle the situation Things went downhill after that The first sign was when she didn’t turn up at Raipur to watch India play the World Hockey League Finals That was a sure sign that things had soured It’s true that Sardar had wanted to marry her He was in a relationship with her A few players had commented that she was more serious about it than him But it was dismissed as just a snide remark because with all the travelling and training it’s not possible for a player to be constantly looking at his iPad or smartphone Ash was possessive She did complain once in a while that Sardar ‘ignored’ her The accusations are serious shocking and could be harmful And someone in Sardar’s position as Indian captain needs to resolve it quickly Sardar needs to answer the questions asked Not dodge them or dribble past A woman’s respect and feelings are on the line There can’t be a force more propulsive than a woman wronged and this episode should not degenerate into an Indian Crime Story: Ash Vs Sardar Singh (Sundeep has covered 7 hockey World Cups and is the author of ‘Forgive me Amma’ an unauthorised biography of Dhanraj Pillay) Written by
