He got training under his late father Ustad Rana Khan, who himself was one of the best folk singers in India. Another person who trained him was his uncle. He was certainly blessed with the best teacher, who made him win the ICCR scholarship for musical training at the tender age of 14. Further, owing to the training, today he has spread the charm of Manganiyar Folk Music (which includes songs for every occasion of life) and Sufi Songs all across the globe.
Be it a Rajasthani Sufi songs or Manganiyar songs, the voice of Mame Khan has infused life in both. When he performs, he sets the stage on fire. He has also spread his charm in various Bollywood flicks and was recently seen performing with Amit Trivedi on MTV Coke Studio Season2.
