The Jodhpur RIFF: Folk Music in the Blue City with Travel Must

Posted by Heiko Pfeiffer • Wednesday, October 9. 2013 • Category: People and Places
From the majestic Mehrangarh Fort to famous blue houses in the old city, Jodhpur never fails to impress its visitors. The Rajasthan International Folk Festival (RIFF), organised yearly in October, adds to this city’s charm. Come and join us on a weekend trip which will leave you with many new visual and auditive impressions.

We will meet at Delhi Cantt Station on Friday 18th October and board the train at 9.46 pm and reach Jodhpur the next morning at 7.45 am.

Our guesthouse is located in a quiet lane close to the Mehrangarh Fort and has a terrasse restaurant which offers spectacular views of the fort, especially at night.

Besides attending the Northern Lights concert at the Mehrangarh Fort on Saturday evening, showcasing an eclectic mix of Indian and Western folk music, you will have enough time to explore Jodhpur’s fort, its small lanes and bazaars. Music enthusiasts have the possibility to attend a sunrise concert on Sunday morning as well.

The RIFF festival provides the ideal musical backdrop for you to explore vibrant Jodhpur.

Are you interested? All you have to do now is to come along and jump on board.
