Gevar Khan Manganiyar is the eldest son of Sakar Khan of Hamira who passed away in August 2013. Gevar is now the head of the family and the most skillful kamaicha player in the style of Sakar Khan and on of the two greatest living kamaicha players. His three sons Rafiq (kamaicha), Hanif (dholak), and Dilip (vocal and dholak), and nephews Sawai and Roshan were important participants, at the forefront of Manganiyar musicians of their generation. From Gevar Khan's gentle and humble demeanor one would not guess that he has travelled abroad—worldwide—more than 160 times.
