In the heart of Rajasthan, lies the majestic Mandawa, a quaint Shekhawati town adorned with frescoes, tales and bearings of a regal era gone by. The heritage and ancient royal charm of Mandawa met with a world class mix of music, art and culture at the debut edition of Taalbelia, a fully sold out four-day long multi-format festival organized by Event Crafter between January 26th and January 29th, 2017.

Despite, the late hours , the audiences managed to wake up to light devotional music emanating from Meera Chowk (Castle Mandawa) that saw elevating performances of Sumitra (meera bhajans) and Sunita Amin (dhrupad) and Sukriti Sen, that filled the halls of the castle with the sound of the celestial ragas.

Risala saw a neat blend of saw fusion and Rajasthani folk along with impromptu collaborations featuring artists such as Bhanwari Devi, Rajasthan Josh, Grammy award winner and Padma Bhushan Awardee Pt.

The evening events held at the Dhobi Ghat and the Big Ibhah stages in the Desert Resort showcased an array of genres ranging from Hip-Hop and Blues to Reggae along with EDM, World Fusion and other genres of indie music with performers such as coveted singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad, Grammy winner George Brooks, Soulmate, Indian Ocean, Divine, Reggae Rajahs, Ankur and The Ghalat Family, Sound Avtar, Dualist Inquiry among others.

The programming boasted of specially curated sets featuring the rare collaboration of Indian Ocean with Grammy Award winning stalwarts, Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Jaipur-based Mohanveena or slide guitar exponent) and George Brooks (American saxophonist known for combining jazz and Indian classical music) and one the best Blues acts of the country - Shillong’s Soulmate.
