Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A Sangeet Natak Akademi award winner, Lakha Khan is one of the last living masters of a rare and versatile instrument, the Sindhi Sarangi. He is a Manganiyar, a marginalized community of Muslims who make a living playing music on either side of the India-Pakistan border. In Pakistan, the community is called 'Manganhar', and has less complex, but nevertheless potent, version of the sarangi called the surando. Lakha Khan's music goes well beyond the confines of his community in range, repertoire and above all, inclusiveness. For this-and his unique talent-his place in Indian folk music history is assured. Lakha Khan, a maestro of the folk version of the instrument, uses the adaptability of the Sarangi to play music from a variety of traditions. He sings Bulleh Shah in Punjabi just as fluently as he renders Kabir's dohas in Hindi, and is just as comfortable singing songs native to Rajasthan in a variety of dialects.

Review

In the master's hand, the Sufi-influenced melody he coaxes from it (the sarangi) is transformative. --Michael Sullivan on NPR

As humankind takes advantage of technology's ability to link formerly separate cultures, local art forms can suffer. This is perhaps nowhere more true than in Rajasthan, India, where a caste of hereditary Muslim musicians known as 'Merasi' or 'Manganiyar' have for centuries performed traditional tunes documenting the history and legends of the region s Thar Desert. As a younger generation of musicians comes into maturity, however, the Manganiyar tradition is in danger of being lost which makes an opportunity to see Lakha Khan all the more urgent. Now in his 60s, he is a virtuoso of the sarangi, a violin-shaped instrument played with a bow. He performs a repertoire of songs that often address practical matters one tune is the story of a liquor baron who attempts to negotiate prices for a hunting party in Rajasthan. Last year, a New Delhi record label released Lakha Khan's At Home, which documents the master musician s art with a series of field recordings. --Edd Hurt on Nashville Scene
