About The Event

BARMER BOYS (Rajasthan/India) - Barmer Boys are the next generation of performers that carry forward the centuries-old musical traditions of the Manganiyars and are leading examples 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 made their international debut in 2014 with shows at Roskilde Festival ’14, Borneo World Music Expo ’14, a US debut with a coast-to-coast tour in April ’14, and have been wooing audiences on television screens, cinema halls and festivals in India including MTV CokeStudio Season 3, NH7 Weekender ‘14, IIT Mood Indigo ’14 and Jaipur Literature Festival ’15.

2015 featured the group making their Canadian debut at the 2015 Winnipeg Folk Festival and Flaunt Festival in Toronto, and a European tour with concerts in The Netherlands at Music Meeting, Nijmegen, in Spain at the Handmade Festival (Santiago de Compostela, Galicia), in Germany at Mother India Festival (HKW Berlin), and Denmark (Distortion Festival in Copenhagen, Musikbibliotek in Odense). Barmer Boys turn up the heat this winter with sold out shows in Delhi, their Hong Kong debut at Clockenflap Music and Arts Festival, and voted "the discovery of the season" at the Ziro Festival of Music in Arunachal Pradesh, India.
