THE SACRED PUSHKAR – A Festival of Mind, Body and Soul
12-14 October 2018
The Sacred Pushkar festival is back for its 4th Edition this year and will be held from 12th to 14th October 2018. The Festival will celebrate mindful living with Sacred music performances, healing therapies, yoga, guided meditation, interesting workshops, food trails, and curated heritage walks in timeless Pushkar. At “The Sacred, Pushkar” the city’s spiritual ambience will combine with divinity itself through the ageless enchantment of music: poignant, vibrant and celestial!
The Festival brings together some of the most powerful and diverse, national and international performers from various traditions of Sacred Music to Pushkar – a charming little town of Rajasthan steeped in mythology and set around the hallowed Pushkar Lake. With evocative music at the centre of this experiential getaway, the Festival will feature headline performances by award-winning vocalist and composer, Bombay Jayashri and Nooran Sisters, a Sufi singing duo from Sham Chaurasia gharana of Classical music.
The Sacred Pushkar will provide an opportunity to appreciate and assimilate Pushkar’s diverse religious, architectural, culinary and handicraft heritage: the spectacular ghats, delectable fare of organic food and the vibrant handicrafts created by local artisans. With a thoroughly invigorating and engaging programme, the Festival offers an experience of Pushkar like never-before.
At Teamwork Arts, we celebrate the spirit of creative expression and this festival is a manifestation of all things sacred that lie within us. From the tranquility of Pushkar to therapeutic sessions by experts through the day and numerous soul stirring performers who’ve joined to collaborate for this experience, visitors will have the opportunity to step into what’s beyond: new sounds, new moves, new sights, new ideas and new tastes. – Sanjoy Roy, Managing Director of Teamwork Arts
