The song Jhirmir by well-known folk musician Kutle Khan is out
The Award-winning urban folk artist Kutle Khan is known for his electrifying performances as well as extensive collaborative work with distinguished artists from across the world such as Susheela Raman, Midival Punditz & Amit Trivedi among others. After having performed in over 70 countries across some of the finest stages, festivals, venues and formats such as Coke Studio & IIFA, Kutle is now focussed on showcasing his individualistic body of work as an artist. Starting with the performance video single of Jhirmir on August 17th, 2022 where he has collaborated with his favourite Producer Gaurav Raina (of Midival Punditz), the singer will be releasing a series of Indian Folk Electronica singles this year.
Rooted deeply in Rajasthani culture & lyrics in the casing of a strong dance floor vibe, Jhirmir sets the tone of the refreshing new feel of renowned Rajasthani folk star Kutle Khan’s sound for 2022. With his new music, he’s keen to present a different side of his art with the aim to bring a contemporary aesthetic to his folk offerings. The very first song from the lot - Jhirmir, as the title suggests, talks about rain and carries the emotions of a wife missing her husband who is away this monsoon season. Stream Jhirmir here
Khan is probably one of the first few and only Manganiyar musicians to have won GIMA and TIIFA (The Indian Icon Film Awards). Hailing from a family of musicians, this master of the khartal from the land of the Rajputs began playing music at the age of 8, learning every instrument he could get his hands on. Khan plays over 10 instruments such as the dholak, khartal, bhapang harmonium and also writes and composes his own songs.
Khan will be releasing a series of singles with 4 Producers including Raina throughout the year.
