The Jaipur Music Stage
The Jaipur Music Stage is more than just a place for literature-enthusiasts to unwind after an exhilarating day of talks: it is a musical confluence, opening audiences up to new sounds. The Stage, running parallel to the Jaipur Literature Festival, will present – apart from some breathtaking evenings of performances – workshops, masterclasses, talks and sessions, giving music-lovers a chance to interact with musicians, learn more about instruments and nuances within musical genres.
The Jaipur Music Stage celebrates music in all its forms. From Carnatic to the Blues, and Punjabi to Sufi electro, we’ve got it all. This year, Jaipur will see unbelievable collaborations between diverse artistes, as well as workshops and a music bazaar, in against a vibrant carnival-like backdrop. Jaipur Music Stage is surely the place to be when the sun goes down. – Sanjoy K. Roy, Managing Director of Teamwork Arts, producers of the Jaipur Music Stage,
