A flood of Sufi music from across the world


This year’s edition of the World Sufi Spirit Festival (WSSF), held annually at two venues in Rajasthan, will feature artists from Iran, Morocco, Lebanon, Azerbaijan and Tajikistan besides India.

The WSSF has been bringing together Sufi performers from across the world on a single platform, giving listeners an opportunity to come face to face with sufi traditions.

To be held from February 17-23 at the Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur and the Ahichhatragarh fort in Nagaur, the festival will also see performances by sufi singers Kavita Seth from India and Javed Bashir from Pakistan — both known for their rendition of popular Hindi film songs.

“This edition promises to be a memorable musical journey … [we are] pleased to have the likes of Kavita and Javed on board this season,” says Karni Jasol, Director, Mehrangarh Museum Trust.

The WSSF, which has been playing host to some of the leading exponents of Sufi music from across the world, is patronised by international artist Sting. “It feels great to be a part of festival that promotes the rich culture of Sufism. I look forward to collaborating with like-minded artists from across the globe,” says Kavita Seth, known for popular film numbers like ‘Iktara’ ( Wake Up Sid ) and ‘Tumhi ho Bandhu’ (Cocktail ). Contemporary Lebanese singer Abeer Nehme will also perform at the festival.

“I am looking forward to perform at the World Sufi Spirit Festival and I appreciate the platform that has been created to promote a traditional art,” says Javed Bashir.
