World Sufi Spirit Festival

The sixth edition of the World Sufi Spirit Festival (WSSF) starts Feb 22 in Jodhpur and it will bring an eclectic mix of Sufi music from a host of talents across the world.

Hosted by the Royal family of Jodhpur, the Sufi music festival will start at the Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur and will culminate Feb 27 at Ahichhatragarh Fort in Nagaur.

The festival promises to present music traditions from various parts of the world. Performers from Egypt, Turkey, France, Pakistan, Paris, Mongolia and Afghanistan will showcase their talent. From India, musicians from Kerala, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan will be seen participating in the fest.

"Music is a language that transcends all barriers across the globe... Don't miss this exquisite occasion and experience the magic!" international singer Sting, patron of the festival, said in a statement.

Jodhpur's erstwhile royal Maharaja Gaj Singh II said Sufi music brings a "feeling of universality in the true spiritual sense".

"It is divine blend of power and tenderness. Having said that, WSSF will give both the national as well as the international artists a common ground to learn and discover rich Sufi traditions prevalent worldwide. It further gives them an opportunity to establish a connect between different cultures," he added.
