When tradition meets modernity, it often makes for a beautiful blend. The Pink City is well known for its rich history, tradition, culture which includes folk music and now, for the first time, Jaipur is going to have the International Jazz and Blues Festival. The festival will showcase the best of jazz and blues music from all around the world. Jaipurites can look forward to a scintillating, heady evening of music on 8th and 9th of March.
Music is probably one of the best ways to get in touch with our roots, immerse ourselves in the otherworldly tones and let go of our worries. The festival aims to do exactly that and also to expose the audience to the intricacies of Jazz and Blues music.
The international festival will not only showcase national performers, but also renowned musicians from all around the world, thereby adding to the charm of the affair. Since Jaipur is a city where these genres are not very prevalent, this may be your best chance to witness the talented jazz and musicians in action.
The festival is all set to add to the enchanting charm of Jaipur and if you’ve never experienced these genres, this is a great place to start. The soothing jazz tones, the slight bass in the background and the light shuffle of the drums make your head light and you’ll want to keep coming back for more.
Feeling sad and lonely? Pay a visit to the blues stand and let the emotional guitar solos wash your sorrows away. Jazz and blues may feel complex from the outside, but once you hear it, you can’t just stop at one song.
The International Jazz and Blues Festival will be organized at Central Park, Jaipur from March 08 to March 09.
