Coming back after a phenomenal debut edition in Jan of this year, Taalbelia is not one festival you’d want to miss out on if you’re looking for all things exotic!
How exotic can exotic be? A superfluous question if you think in the normal realm of possibilities when it comes to music festivals in India, but it is one that would have its answer handed to you if you were to witness Taalbelia! Just in its second edition, Taalbelia is a festival of grandeur seeped in history in the midst of eclectic music.
Scheduled to be held this December 23-25th at Mandawa, in Rajasthan, Taalbelia offers a lot more than just music. A whole experience of the lushest music, finest arts & crafts, engaging workshops and adventure activities, palatial accommodation, and the most scrumptious delicacies, is what awaits you as you step into this wonderland of a festival! With 4 stages and over 30 artists playing, you sure are going to be spoilt for choice at this festival. Make sure you purchase your tickets right now, here.
What makes Taalbelia a unique setting in its own right is the spirit and vibe it encompasses in all its offerings at the festival. Witness some unique collaborations between Indus Creed and inspiring veteran legend Lou Majaw, Maari Baani and Moorlala who will create an eclectic fusion between Arabic and Kutch sounds.
Also witness Prem Joshua join forces with classical vocalist, Mahesh Vinayakram. In a first, Mohit Chauhan will ignite the spirit of Taalbelia with a completely non-Bollywood set featuring Chambayeee folk music.
Take a look at the festival schedule that’s had us excited all the while!
Edition 2 will showcase special once-in-a-lifetime curated sets and collaboration on 4 different backdrops, with a number of workshops and more. Taalbelia is a travel tale and music festival rolled into one! A special offering at Taalbelia is the phenomenal change of musical genres as the direction of the sun changes, making it a multi-genre festival in the most immersive sense!
