A root-ed and culture rich chat with the man behind India’s longest running music festival – Rajasthan International Folk Festival aka Jodhpur RIFF.
In a freewheeling chat Mr. Bhatia, talks about the very core of Jodhpur RIFF, programming basics, the fabulous show of the feminine strength in this year’s line-up and a possible revolution in the making with fresh words been laid down on the Indian Roots music map. The 12th edition of Jodhpur RIFF will take place at the majestic Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, Rajasthan from October 10th to 14th, 2019.
