He has performed in more than fifty countries around the world and is now working closely with Mercury Prize nominated musician Susheela Raman with whom he played to a sold-out Queen Elizabeth Hall this April. An astonishing percussionist and talented teacher, Nanga is looking forward to sharing his talents with you at Burycourt Barn.

Champe Khan is an energetic and compelling singer, percussionist and keyboardist. Highly skilled and able to enhance the quality of any performance, he is highly sought-after for collaborations and solo shows.
