Five Memories at a music festival, RIFF – Jodhpur!

My experience at RIFF’ 12 and the five things which come to my memory without giving much thought as it is etched for life for good -My experience at RIFF’ 12 and the five things which come to my memory without giving much thought as it is etched for life for good -

1) Train Journey

Train journeys are good especially if you are with a group of like minded nerds or junkies or may be a good mix of both. As the Mandore Express chugs into Jodhpur Station early morning and you realize that you haven’t slept the whole night because you were too busy in chatting up and knowing each other!

2) Folk Music

Discover folk music at its best in the Not a big fan of folk music (not even clear with the exact definition) but soon the whole setting and the aura of the festival made me listen and not only the chords hit my heart but the story of each musician made an everlasting impression of how art has been preserved and why such platforms should be created to honor the custodians of our tradition and culture.

3) Mehrangarh Fort

Discover the corners of Mehrangarh Fort like a local – Attending RIFF insures that you explore the nooks and corner of the fort looking out for performances. Some of the areas of the fort which are usually closed for public on regular days are opened up to host performances and one on one interaction sessions with the musicians.

4) Local Cuisine

How can we go to Rajasthan and not try the local cuisine over there – though the busy schedule of the festival doesn’t give you enough time to explore the food at the local market but the craving for the local cuisine and the much awaited camel safari through the dunes of Osiyan made us stay an extra day after the festival. It was fun with the weather just apt to roam around the desert and enjoy the landscapes at our own leisure was fun!

5) Nightlife @RIFF

Reminds me of the good old days in Delhi when you could go on partying till you drop. After parties at Jodhpur RIFF gives you an opportunity to dance to the best music in the world, good crowd, amazing DJs and no time restiction, Dance till you feel like and then wake up to the soothing Dawan performance at Jaswant Thada with the backdrop of the fort, ready for the day ahead!
