About the festival
Sufi music has always been a bridge between the East and West, promoting some of the most liberal and accessible aspects of Islam for centuries. Spiritual and passionate, enchanting and exciting, blissful and exotic, Sufi music is unlike any other. Sufi forms can feel extremely varied and distinct, particularly to newcomers, while others may be surprised to discover that the Indian Qawwali has been traditionally linked to the Turkish dervishes. Sufism truly goes beyond religion. It lets you rise above temples, mosques and churches and allows you to connect on a spiritual level with your creator. It aids you on your quest towards self-realization and enlightenment and is best experienced in the form of fantastical dance, music, and poetry.
The World Sacred Spirit Festival, a stage for some of the greatest artists from all over the planet to enthral their audience, is considered to rank at the very top of Sufi festivals. The 2018 edition of this world-famous tradition shall be held in Nagaur and Jodhpur, in the royal settings of Nagaur Fort and Mehrangarh Fort, thereby making the event even more special.
