Khan is one of those rare breeds of musicians, whose music emerges from soul and pierces the listeners heart. Apart from gracing many prestigious platforms both national and international, Mame Khan, has also lent his voice to popular Hindi films like No One Killed Jessica (Aitbaar) and Luck by Chance (Bawre).
