After presenting last year the “Desert Slide” project, Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhat is back to Jodhpur, This time it’s tempos and rags will slide on the lake of Jaswant Thada
Through his ingenious creation, the Mohan Veena, Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has mesmerized audiences the world over. The transformative design and shape, the addition of 14 more strings to the Hawaiian guitar, Vishwamohan ji’s Midas touch has not only taken Mohan Veena to unimaginable heights but has also cast a magic spell on the global audiences by showing perfect amalgamation of sitar, sarod, and veena techniques through his performances.
Pandit ji is the most expressive, gifted, and greatest slide player today, who can play at bedazzling speeds. Through Mohan Veena, Pandit Vishwamohan Bhatt has created a distinctive blend of Indian and Western classical music, being even sometimes a real rocker!

The sarod, which probably appeared in the first half of the 19th century, is inextricably linked with the history of the Afghan rabab, introduced to India during the migration of numerous Pathan mercenaries from Afghanistan in previous centuries.
It is through two brothers born to an illustrious father: Amjad Ali Khan that the sarod is meeting the flamenco guitar.
Prestigious musicians, Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash represent the seventh generation of a musical lineage known as the Senia Bangash School. Sons and disciples of the Sarod icon Amjad Ali Khan, and grandson of Haafiz Ali Khan, both brothers stepped into the world of music and the Sarod with confidence, clarity, consistency and the technical mastery that they learned at their father’s knees.

The Komuz, the nomadic lute of Kyrgyzstan

The long-necked lute komuz, like most of the lutes of Central Asia , is part of the great tradition of the bards, founding figures in the history of nomadic peoples of Turkmen origin.
In Kyrgyzstan, the founding figure of the bard is Dede Korkut. With the arrival of Islam, in this end-of-times atmosphere, the horsemen of the apocalypse, the Türk-Oghuz – a name to which we attribute the origin of the word “ogre” – did experience a transition: the passage to Islam and the end of nomadic life, which they begin to dream about and idealize.
It is this “nomadic spirit” that lies at the heart of the epic tale of Dede Korkut, the creator of the komuz lute. This lute, which expresses the gallop of the horse, restores a people’s idea of its identity and fundamental values.

Poet, bard, Madan Gopal carries in him all the spirit of this festival.
Beyond a career as a writer, scriptwriter and poet like his father, the famous master of Punjabi poetry Harbhajan Singh, Madan Gopal is a true bard in the great tradition of Sufi and ancient poets who crossed mountains and deserts, bearers of sacred words. By himself, he represents the whole philosophy of this festival.
In a universal vision, he can sing the poetry of famous Sufi poets like Rumi, Shah Husain, Sultan Bahu, Baba Bulle Shah as well as the poetry of Bob Dylan or John Lennon.
Rooted to Sufi tradition, part of the Mirasi community of Bikaner area, Mukhtiyar began his musical journey with Sufiana Qalam and extends it to all forms of spiritual expression of poetry like Kafi, Qawwali, Ghazal, Bhajan and KabirVani. His very precise and refined soft voice breeds emotion and a state of full peacefulness.
The Mirasi music and traditional dance community from North India and Pakistan holds their name from the Arabic word mīrās, which means inheritance or sometimes heritage.
