Satiyana Rangeela - a memorable performance by Mame Khan Manganiyar at KSC Abu Dhabi

A group of Rajasthani performers captivated the audience at the inaugural day of the 3rd Indo Arab Cultural Festival held at Kerala Social Centre Abu Dhabi on 26th February 2009. The programme titled Satyana Rangeela was really marvellous.

The programme was presented by Sri Mame Khan Manganiyar and the style of music is called Manganiyar music.

Mame Khan Manganiyar has been born in a small village named Satto, situated close
to the Golden City of Jaisalmer. Since his early childhood his father Rana Khan,
who was a great singer and of the Manganiyar community, was his teacher and
source of inspiration. From him he learned a wide range of traditional folk songs
and Sufi music. These songs belong to the history of the Manganiyars since generations.

To enable him to develop his musical skills he got at the age of 12 a sponsorship
from the CCRT -Centre For Resources And Training, New Delhi-. A growing
number of concerts all over India is the result of years of rehearsal. He was invited
to play on many occasions for example in Mumbai, Delhi, Madras, Kerala, Bangalore,
Calcutta, Ahmadabad and many cities more.

Coming from a small village, it was a great step for his professional life to play in the USA first time in 1999. Since that time he is performing his music on the stages all over the world and fascinates the audience with his outstanding performance and unique voice. The numerous journeys to Europe, USA, Canada, Asia and
the Gulf Countries gave Mame Khan the opportunity to establish many

successful fusion projects in order to keep his old tradition alive in new ways.
