The group mainly consisting of Dalit youth from the region, and includes students and young professionals. KKM took part in innumerable public interest causes like slum-dwellers rights, workers rights, and sustainable development, but their special affinity has been fighting for the annihilation of caste to which end they even held events promoting inter-caste marriage. In 2011, KKM members were forced to go underground after police began to describe them as Naxalites. Members of KKM were arrested and jailed in 2012 and 2013. This recording is one of their songs “Devhar Bajula Sarle” (poet: Sachin Mali, singer: Sagar Gorkhe).
