Sattar Khan was born in Kerap, a small village in Rajasthan, India. His father, as his ancestors, were musicians, carriers of a tradition as well popular as traditional. He became master in the art of playing the dholak and, after his arrival in Europe in 1996, he did not cease transmitting his cultural heritage in a very particular way, whilst sharing it with interpreters of various percussion instruments.
Sattar Khan has a long experience in playing with the group Musafir and he also played with musicians such as Natasha Atlas, Ghalia Benali and Mary-Anne Roberts,...
In 2004, taking advantage from this Western experience, Sattar decided to present his own traditional heritage – the music and dance of Rajasthan. The music group Rangeela was born out of a varied and coloured mixture of artists coming from the four corners of the Thar desert: each one of them giving a particular interpretation of a lyric and musical heritage.
Sattar Khan collaborated with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui on Babel(words).
