Citadel - - EVENTS -

Mak­ing a noise with some­thing new, Creaticity brought to Pune a nine-day cul­tural festival. They pre­sented The Black & Gold band fea­tur­ing Mame Khan, who pre­sented au­then­tic Sufi mu­sic but in a con­tem­po­rary sounds cape to the au­di­ence. It was ac­com­pa­nied by a Kathak per­for­mance by Rujuta So­man, an in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed Kathak dancer. The band in­cor­po­rated a tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary form to create a com­plete vis­ual and au­dio de­light to the ur­ban au­di­ence. Mame Khan and Suha Khan had the crowd ap­plaud­ing in ex­cite­ment as they created magic on stage. Mame Khan set the stage on fire with ‘Ke­sariya Balam Pad­haro Mhare Des’ and his Coke stu­dio famed ‘Ma­haarey Hivd­hey Mein Jaagi Dhaunkani’. Born and brought up in Man­gani­yar com­mu­nity of mu­si­cians in Ra­jasthan, tra­di­tional mu­sic has been part of Mame Khan’s life since child­hood. He per­forms the oral tra­di­tion in a unique way, which has been car­ried through fif­teen gen­er­a­tions. To­day, he sings a wide reper­toire of tra­di­tional folk and Sufi songs. Mame Khan has sung in pop­u­lar Bol­ly­wood movies such as No one Killed Jes­sica, Luck By Chance

and Mirzya.
