About the project


Join us in creating a one of it's kind music album!

What's this project about?

Mame Khan and the Manganiyars are recording a full length album filled with some beautiful music. Rajasthani folk songs fuse with Sufi music for this project to create a unique and beautiful blend of sound. This album is going to be a medium not only to spread joy, but also to reach out to the world showing the potentioal and beauty of Rajasthani Folk and Sufi music.

What's the motivation behind this project?

Mame Khan and his team are working right now on this dream project, packed with amazing songs and lots of love! Mame Khan, being a traditional Manganiyar musician from the Thar desert in West India - Rajasthan, was dreaming since long to produce his own album. The Manganiyars look back to more than 15 generations of oral tradition and Mame Khan and his team have always been working hard to keep this tradition alive. Having this at the core of his heart, it is important to re-invent the old music, adding a modern twist without losing the orignis of the sound - addressing a new, modern generation of listeners.

What kind of songs can you expect?

Mame Khan and his band have made a great selection of 7 special songs. These songs are a universe of colors and emotions, including Rajastahi Folk, Sufi & Krishna Bhajans. It is the first album created by a Manganiyar musician on his own, with a full new approach towards the sound quality. Mame Khan and his team have recorded all the songs on clip, which brings in a challenge on its own. Normally Manganiyar Folk artists are used to playing live to a group only. But the team managed to overcome all limitations, taking this project to a whole new level.

The extra details?

We have almost recorded 70% of the album and are planning to complete it by March 2015. This would include the final mastering as well. We're planning to promote and market the album on social media and conduct online campaigns. We're also planning a launch tour pan India to bring the music to all the fans like you. Right now, we're in the process to finalize a distribution partner, the album will also be online and available in the market. As a special highlight there will be a music video by Filmkaar visible on YouTube!

Why crowdfunding?

Art and music in India survied since ancient times due to the help of patrons - kings and noblemen. Today you can take this role of being a modern patron, supporting a uniqe art form and encouraging a generation of Folk and Sufi artists from the Thar desert to carry on their legacy. Or join in simply because we make great music. :)

 

How will the money be used?

Rs. 150000 in Studio

Rs. 50000 in Mastering

Rs. 50000 in Artists & other expenses


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

The risks are relativley small, since all team members are very experienced musicians and they are dedicated to what they do. Also we have gone already some way with the reordings, so we are confident that we will reach our goal with great results.

What happens when I don't raise enough money?

This album is our dream project and we won't let this fail! With your help we can make this happen, so please do trust and do share our love for music!

How am I going to prove that I won't just take all the money and run away?

You know us and you propably know where we live :) For all new friends, do join us any time in the studio or hang out with us while we are in Jaisalmer-Jaipur-Delhi-Mumbai...or anywhere else!

Still doubts? Ok, we also shall keep you updated on facebook and you will continuously see our project grow.
