Some Words About Us

Jodhpur Folk Symphony - a Kasam Khan Langa group is very old ethinic folk dance and music group which was started by Mr Dhanne Khan - father of Kasam Khan. This father-son group has a very good team of folk dancers, musicians and singers. Group is experience in playing folk instruments like sarangi, algoza, tabla, dholak, harmonium,Khartaal etc.

The Sarangi used by the Langas, is made up of four main wires, with more than twenty vibrating sympathetic strings which help to create its distinctive haunting tones. The bowing of these instruments is a skilful exercise, often supported by the sound of the 'ghungroos' or ankle bells that are tied to the bow to make the beat more prominent.Khartaal produces melodious musical sounds with the special movements of the hands.
