The second edition of Udaipur World Music Festival promises more zing and fervor

Sponsored by Hindustan Zinc in association with Wonder Cement and Rajasthan Tourism and conceptualized and produced by SEHER, The Second Edition of the electrifying Udaipur World Music Festival that created new landmarks in music, will be held over three days this year from February 10th to 12th 2017. This time, the lineup is more illustrious and bigger with 150 artists from over 16 countries, including prominent names and first timers whom we have been dying to listen to, like Kabir Café, London Community Gospel Choir and Azam Ali among others-- all brought together on one platform.


This time, UWMF 2017 will be a three day event that will bring together more than 150 artists​ from over 16 countries including United Kingdom, Italy, South Africa, Senegal, Canada, Armenia, Turkey, Macedonia, Mozambique, Norway, Iran, Cuba, Switzerland and India among other nations to multiple venues across the city of Udaipur.


Festival Director Sanjeev Bhargava says, "A festival of this scale featuring such diverse music from so many different continents and regions coming together in one of the best Tourist destinations of India would make Udaipur a culturally vibrant destination. An annual event where International and domestic travelers can mark the dates on their yearly travel calendar.”


The first day of the festival, this year will take off from Gandhi Ground where Iranian American Singer Azam Ali will introduce us to the spiritual world of Electro Sufi World Music with her music partner Niyaz and the very famous Kailash Kher & Kailasa will croon Sufi numbers. For an international spin, the collective of musicians from Mozambique, Norway, Sweden and Zimbabwe—Monoswezi—will hypnotise the crowd with their fresh spin of traditional African songs.


On the second day, Fateh Sagar Paal lake of Udaipur will echo with the magical poetic renditions of Ablaye Cissoko from Senegal who will collaborate with the Constantinople Ensemble from Canada for the first time in India. Music lovers will also witness band Kabir Café celebrating the great Saint Kabir’s writings. In the evening, Gandhi Ground will come alive with smashing rock numbers of Indian band Parvaaz and South African World Music band Hot Water. The day will conclude with a high-energy performance by Bangalore based folk/fusion band, Swarathma.


The third and final day will be one filled with a lot of novelty like trance and gospel music which seldom come on a big platform like this. The day will commence at Fateh Sagar Paal with Brazilian songs, Afro-Cuban rhythms and Jazz renditions of the vivacious Swiss-Cuban musician Yilian Canizares. The festival will end in the evening at Gandhi Ground with three performances—Italian band Officina Zoe will introduce you to the world of trance with the Trance Therapy Music of Taranta; guitarist and composer Dhruv Ghanekar’s new project Dhruv Voyage will join force with some of the exciting musicians in the country and London Community Gospel Choir will give the festival a fitting spiritual finale.
