Jodhpur Riff

Jodhpur RIFF is India’s premiere international roots and original music festival which presents a wonderful mix of free and ticketed concerts from dawn to dawn. The festival is hosted in an intimate setting of extraordinary beauty at the stunning 15th century Mehrangarh Fort, and it takes place in October.

Annually, the festival features more than 300 musicians which feature roots, folk, street and jazz music from around the world.

Additionally, the festival is also committed to positively impacting the livelihood of the traditional musicians of Rajasthan, for which they regularly produce a variety of original musical collaborations with musicians for festivals and shows across the world. Tours with these collaborations have taken place across India, UK, Australia, Europe and South Africa, mostly with jazz and blues musicians.

The festival has attracted over 250,000 concert-goers and has presented more than 800 artists and ensembles from over 30 countries since it began in 2007.
