  • RRAP Music Museum & Hub G-15 Krisha Marg, C-scheme Jaipur India (map)


A special performance by world-class musicians blending Peruvian and Rajasthani folk music.

We are delighted to welcome internationally-acclaimed folk musician and award-winning film musical director CHANO DIAZ LIMACO for a performance at the RRAP Music Museum & Hub.

A multi-instrumentalist (specializing in beautiful Andean instruments Charango, Quena and Zampoña/Panpipes to name a few...) coming from a long tradition of musicians from Ayacucho, Chano started out his career busking around the streets of Europe in the early 90's before returning to Peru and becoming an integral part of era-defining folk fusion bands such as El Polen and Del Pueblo y Del Barrio. He recorded several best-selling Andean instrumental records and went on to musically direct epic documentary Sigo Siendo 'Katchkaniraqmi' by director Javier Corcuera, which traversed the varied Peruvian landscape via the old and new masters of its incredibly deep-rooted folk traditions. He has taken the Andean traditions all around the globe in solo performances, but we are excited to announce that this will be his very first concert in India.

Joining him will be a gifted group of renowned Rajasthani folk musicians led by GAZI KHAN BARNA. Gazi ji is a long standing associate and friend of RRAP's, and he features heavily in our museum, showcasing his master Khartal skills and sharing deep wisdom through interviews. He featured as a musician on groundbreaking film Latcho Drom, sang 'Baisa Ladka Ghana', a song featured on award-winning film Parched (Leena Yadav, 2015) and has performed internationally taking our Rajasthani sounds with him. Completing the group will be Talab Khan Barna (Vocals), Firoz Khan Manganiyar (Dholak), Bhawru Khan Langa (Sindhi Sarangi) and Harun Khan Langa (Algoza + Murli).

We will be treated to performances showcasing Peruvian and Rajasthani traditions in their pure form, before a very special premiere performance - RAJASTHANxPERU - which will arise from a 2-day workshop hosted by RRAP where all the musicians will work together to develop an innovative project marrying Rajasthani and Peruvian melodies, rhythms and textures, elevating the project initiated by music producer Tomas Diaz during our first RAJASTHANxPERU concert in September of last year.

We will be extending the museum hours for anyone who wishes to explore.
