The World Sufi Spirit Festival in India


The World Sufi Spirit Festival in India kicks off this month, an amazing spiritual and musical journey in the historical forts of Jodhpur and Nagaur in India.

The prestigious sites of the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur and the Ahhichatragarh Fort in Nagaur open their doors to an extraordinary sacred and historical musical journey. Lit by the sparkling incandescence of a thousand candles, magnificent, inherited and spiritual arts will carry you to the very origin of a tradition linked to those pilgrims of the past, travellers of the spirit, who brought to civilisation a sense of inspiration and meaning.

Through dance, music and singing, treasures of the Indian culture from Rajasthan and Kerala, nomadic poetry of the Silk Road from Kazakhstan to Afghanistan, Sufi rituals from Turkey or Egypt, will be revealed during this new festival.

Pilgrims from the past, travelers of the spirit, making their way through mountains, deserts and oceans, brought to civilisation a sense of the sacred in daily life.

Today, facing a confusing world based only on materialistic values, it is through art and music that one can relate to a deep feeling of ecstasy – an ecstasy floating between fulfilment and the longing of the beloved, as declaimed by the Sufi poets.

The majestic architecture of the Ahhichatragarh and Mehrangarh Forts seem to be the most appropriate places in India to taste a spirit of music, dance and poetry, steeped in a sense of beauty, fulfillment and eternity.
