“Musafir” itself means wandering which reflects the reality of Hameed Khan “Kawa”, the founder, and his artists. They express their itinerant life through their music and the stage performances. As a nomad told to his son: “For us, to stay at the same place is to stop the rhythm of the universe and die”. Hameed Khan “Kawa”, a tabla player, draws his inspiration from his experiences in India and abroad.In Jaipur, he has created Jaipur Kawa Brass Band and Musafir, groups of traditional musicians from Rajasthan, with whom he has developed an innovative interpretation of Sufi music from the Thar Desert, by adding a new richness and warmth.
We can organize an authentic folk music evening with Hamid Khan and his troupe at his home near Jaipur with prior appointment. Hands on experience to play few instruments and practice ragas can be a great immersion in Indian culture.
