Their next exciting trip is to Rajasthan, 1-17 October 2011.
They will take a group on a tour of musical Rajasthan, introducing guests to a soul-inspiring part of the world. The tour will culminate with the Rajasthan International Folk Festival (RIFF), which showcases the music of Rajasthan against the stunning back drop of the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur.
It’s a totally unique itinerary, including a workshop with top percussionist Nathoo Solanki, who will show guests around his home town of Pushkar; a night-time performance in the desert; camping, jamming, recording and, to cap it all off, talks from local music aficionados writer William Dalrymple (compiler of the WMN's Rough Guide To Sufi Music) and founder of the Rajasthani block-printing fashion house Anokhi John Singh.
Music is an ideal entry point to the unbelievably rich Indian subcontinent. Sound Travels tours are run by people that know the music scene, love it, and want to share it! If you'd like to get involved, check out the full itinerary (and that of future trips!) and get the contact details here.
