Please join us for an evening of Indian music. Sindhi Sarangi maestro Lakha Khan, accompanied by his son Dane Khan on dholak, embarks on his third US tour this March, with Amarrass Records.

Hailing from Raneri Village near the India-Pakistan border in Rajasthan, India, Lakha Khan is one of the great masters from the Manganiyar community of hereditary musicians. His music represents a centuries old musical tradition, whose deep and knowledgable repertoire of songs consist of Rajasthani folk tunes, religious Sufi kalaams, and classical ragas. He is also one of the last remaining sarangi players in his community.
