  • Mukhtiyar Ali is an Indian folk singer who blends a Rajasthani folk idiom with refined classicism, singing the poetry of Kabir, Mira and Bulleh Shah. Mukhtiyar Ali was born in a small village called Pugal on the North West frontier of India in the state of Rajasthan. He is from the semi-nomadic Mirasi Community, which hails from the Thar Desert. Mukhtiyar represents the 26th generation of practitioners of this traditional form, keeping alive the oral tradition of Sufiana Qalam.
