Last week, my good friend Peter Theobald posted an announcement on Facebook about a group of street magicians who he had invited to Mumbai to perform. I grabbed the opportunity to arrange a show at Vatsalya Trust, an orphanage in Mumbai that I am associated with. Mr. N.S. Saraf, a trustee of Vatsalya was kind enough to arrange for all the kids to attend the show on Saturday, 19th January.
The street magicians Babban Khan and Aas Mohammed Khan with Nadir Khan
The magician is Babban Khan, and he hails from Faridabad, India and belongs to a family that practices magic as a profession that has been passed on through generations. He uses very few props and is a genuine performer. He enthralled the kids with his performance, and the expressions on the kids faces was truly priceless!
See this video to get a glimpse of the performance
If you would like to invite Babban Khan, please do contact him on his India phone number +91-9310792897.
