Music has often been regarded as one of the best therapies the mind and spirit can get. Spirituality begins with being at peace with oneself. And what better than music to make you feel that way. And when you combine the two, what you get is pure nirvana. Join us as we take a tour of some music festivals that infuse music with spirituality and create magic.
WORLD SACRED SPIRIT FESTIVAL
It’s all about spirituality! its all about Music!
“An amazing spiritual and musical journey in the splendor of the historical forts of Jodhpur and Nagaur.”
The prestigious sites of the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur and the Ahhichatragarh Fort in Nagaur open their doors to an extraordinary sacred and historical musical journey. Lit by the sparkling incandescence of a thousand candles, magnificent, inherited and spiritual arts will carry you to the very origin of a tradition linked to those pilgrims of the past, travelers of the spirit, who brought to civilisation a sense of inspiration and meaning. Held in the month of February every year, this is one musical showdown which ever travel enthusiast might look forward to!

BALI SPIRIT FESTIVAL
Harmony with God, Harmony in Community, Harmony with Nature!
The goal of the BaliSpirit Festival is to awaken and nourish each individual’s potential for positive change within, leading to positive change in our homes, in our communities, and around the world.

Whirling Dervishes Festival
Men dressed in whites robes and tall hats spinning in circles doesn’t sound as exciting as running with the bulls or dancing at Rio’s Carnival, but the chance to watch the Whirling Dervishes will change you in a way you’d never expect. Based on the teachings and practices of the 13th-century poet Rumi, this 10-day festival will expose you to the power of devotion and show you that spinning can do more than just make you dizzy!
The festival is an authentic, indigenous gathering. In the West, we tend to overlook Rumi’s Islamic message even though 10% of the lines from his poems are taken almost exactly from the Koran. You might come here to marvel at the whirling, but this festival will teach you more about modern Islam than you ever imagined.
Make sure that you’ve got one of these spots on your bucket-list!
