THE SPIRIT OF JODHPUR FESTIVAL Merhangarh Fort February20 – 21, 2012

Pilgrims from the past, travellers of the spirit, making their way through mountains, deserts and oceans, brought to civilisation a sense of the sacred in daily life. Today, facing a confusing world based only on materialistic values, it is through art and music that one can relate to a deep feeling of ecstasy.

The  Spirit  of Jodhpur Festival  Mehrangarh Fort, unique in India, will welcome the most beautiful of sacred traditions from the Orient, the East and Africa, while showing off the wealth of Rajasthan’s traditional heritage, a heritage at the crossroads of Indian, Afghan, Moghol, Arab and Persian civilisations, between Hinduism and Sufi Islam.

Thus thiso prestigious venues, through its history and architectural refinement, will open the door to a musical voyage of initiation into another world. The magnanimous setting of, Mehrangarh Fort- Jodhpur, this small town in the heart of rural Rajasthan, offers a knowledgeable and well-travelled public arriving from the four corners of the world, the chance to taste the rarity of Indian music and to celebrate a full moon that will cast its immaculate white light onto these ancient walls.

Equally lit, by the flickering incandescence of a thousand and one candles, the audience will have the chance to discover magnificent choreographed musical shows created especially for this venue, of which every stone contains the memory of a past that dates back to the 4th century.
