Jaipur till date has not lost its rich heritage and cultural nuances and has been spreading its affinity toward music worldwide. This is the reason why British Council invited this Indian group to perform with Olympic torch.

Kawa Music, founded by Hameed Khan “Kawa” in the year 2000, is dedicated to promote the music and all other forms of performing arts of the North India particularly from Rajasthan.
Kawa Music in September 2007 teamed up Alessandro Maria Torboli, Herve Vital and Hameed Khan “Kawa” to present Kawa Circus. This special creation celebrates the street performers of India, arguably the bearers of one of the most ancient mystical and magical circuses for centuries.
Proud moment for Jaipur as both the bands are ready to spread the magic of music internationally and making a prominent space globally.
