Qutub Festival

The Qutub Festival is back!

This is one of my favourite music festivals because of the venue - to lie on the grass, look at the stars against the shadow of the Qutub Minar, and to hear the rising strains of somebody's voice, a tabla, a sitar, a guitar... to wander off for some hot chaat or halwa or chai, and have the music call you back to its feet. The festival organisers also claim that it is dedicated to the youth of Delhi, which is why there is always one popular fusion band each evening, to go with the classical performance.
