Barmer Boys are the next generation of performers that carry forward the centuries-old musical traditions of the Manganiyars. ‘Global ambassa dors of contemporary Rajasthani folk and Sufi music’, the band’s versatility of styles and bubbling energy infuses each performance - from soulful Sufi kalaams to uplifting wedding and celebratory songs, songs of love and remembrance, to boisterous jams with beat-boxing and live DJ sets.
The group formed in 2011 at the Amarrass Desert Music Festival in New Delhi, and have been wooing audiences at festivals, clubs, on TV, at weddings and private events across India, and in North America, Europe and Asia. Their international debut was at Roskilde Festival in 2014 (playing before The Rolling Stones!), have starred on MTV CokeStudio Season 3, opened the Jaipur Lit Fest. and featured on the BBC and NPR.
The trio’s new album ‘Kesariya Balm’ (digital/vinyl) debuted on the Transglobal World Music Charts Top 40 this summer, features the hit song ‘Bole to Mitho Lage’ (with over 1.3 million views on YouTube!), and is the first Indian folk album to be released on vinyl in India this century!
