Blue Lotus Festival
Blue Lotus Festival is an unprecedented event focused on presenting the richness of genres and styles of best of Indian Sufi, Folk, Traditional, Gypsy, Tribal, Devotional, Spiritual and Indigenous music from 13th to 18th February 2013. The festival will be celebrated in Pushkar – an ancient town of great cultural and historical importance in Rajasthan, India.
Several undiscovered artists from India who have already made their claim to fame on the international front and others who are making beautiful music but are struggling to keep their art forms alive will come together under the misty blue skies of Pushkar to perform live at the Blue Lotus Festival over a period of 6 days. It is a holistic festival where festival goers will be able to participate in workshops with the artists, live art and craft fairs, food carnival, movie screenings, desert safaris and much more.
Respect the Music
The Blue Lotus Festival was created to establish a much-needed platform for the expression, and preservation of indigenous, folk, and other rare and hidden forms of traditional Indian culture. De Kulture Events programmed the event to be a unique hub for diverse audiences to be able to discover and experience Indian culture in all its richness.
We are committed to creating an environment where the artists can showcase their unique music in its natural setting. The Blue Lotus Festival is not only a tribute to endangered cultures and forgotten traditions, it is also a space for the artists’ voices to be heard and acknowledged; they should be the stars and the prime beneficiary group of the event.
In traditional cultures, performers and their audiences have always had a symbiotic relationship characterized by interplay; as such, sharing, exchange, and engagement form the foundation of the experience we shall create at the Blue Lotus Festival. We want to proclaim music as a way of inspiring social inclusion, promoting cultural diversity, and nourishing individual empowerment.
