Wedding and celebratory songs, boisterous jams with beat-boxing Barmer Boys are the next generation of performers that carry forward the centuries-old musical traditions of the Manganiyars. The global ambassadors of Rajasthani folk and Sufi music, the trio's versatility of styles and bubbling energy infuses each performance – from soulful Sufi kalaams and Krishna bhajans, to uplifting wedding and celebratory songs, boisterous jams with beat-boxing and live DJ sets.

The group formed in 2011 at the Amarrass Desert Music Festival, and made their international debut in 2014 with a US tour, showcase at Borneo World Music Festival, and Roskilde Festival. The trio has featured on MTV CokeStudio, BBC, NPR, and have released two critically acclaimed albums – ‘At Home’ (2012, Amarrass Records, 4 Stars in Songlines), and ‘Kesariya Balm’ (2017, Amarrass Records) debuted on the Transglobal World Music Charts Top 40 in 2017.
