Featuring a line-up of a diverse range of performances spanning across multiple genres and styles, this year Jodhpur RIFF will be held from October 10-14. The festival will be hosted by Mehrangarh Fort and will see over 250 artists perform. The festival, a not-for-profit one, features a series of spectacular concerts and events based in and around the imposing fort.

A magical evening at the festival

This year’s line-up includes an unusual musical alliance between Rajasthani and Irish musicians called 'Citadels of the Sun;' the ancient Armenian duduk (a double reed, woodwind instrument) played by maestro Emmanuel Hovhannisyan in collaboration with Swiss-based Authentic Light Orchestra lead by Valeri Tolstov and Veronika Stalder; maestros Ballake Sissoko from Mali on the kora, the ghatam legend Padma Bhushan T.H.Vikku Vinayakram and the incredible Muzikas from Hungary among others.

Apart from that, for the first time, the exciting RIFF Rustle will be led by a woman, Havana-born Yissy Garcia, and percussionist Marypaz from Cuba. RIFF Rustle is the festival’s largest, impromptu collaboration performance that concludes the festival's night time revelries. This year Garcia will be collaborating with Rajasthani musicians and curating a set. You can obtain more information about the lineup and book your tickets here.
