Acclaimed for its enriching soundscapes in picturesque settings, Jodhpur RIFF offers a contemporary experience of rustic cadence, where Rajasthani music amalgamates with global sounds from across the world.

Announcing Jodhpur RIFF 2017, HH Maharaja Gaj Singh II of Marwar-Jodhpur, chief patron of the festival said, “Rajasthani folk musicians are at the heart of Jodhpur RIFF. Their traditions are acknowledged and celebrated at the festival and they benefit from growth and exposure through high-quality international collaborations as well as through our efforts to present them in festivals in India and across the globe. No wonder then, Jodhpur RIFF is increasingly recognized as the leading, much-loved name for music travel in India.

Festival Director (and producer) of Jodhpur RIFF Divya Bhatia said, “Even as we regularly introduce new features to the festival, bringing out the best in Rajasthani musicians while presenting some of the world’s finest root music talent continues to be our area of focus. Our endeavour has been to nurture as many regional artists as possible, right here in their land and facilitate respect and recognition for them across the world. This year, the festival repertoire promises to be equally outstanding as it has been in previous years.”
