Meals with the Maestros
The unique format of India Music Summit means that you spend the day at the venue, eating and drinking at the same place that the musicians do. Don’t be surprised if you find Ustad Shujaat Khan regaling a bunch of Jaipur youngsters with amusing tales from his illustrious musical journey. Lunches and dinners are a chance to have an informal chat with your favourite musicians, ask them questions you’ve been dying to ask or just let them know that you love their music.
Not Just Music
India Music Summit is very clear in its aim to make this a platform for not just listening to, and discovering, music but also to have conversations about music with those who know best. Whether it is was Sonu Nigam discussing the Bollywood music industry or Shankar Mahadevan this year who will deliver the Keynote address, this event is as much as about words as melody.
Single acts and small baithaks are a key feature of the Summit, which prides itself in creating unique sessions and workshops where a small audience can directly interact with the musician. There will be several such sessions on through the day at the summit so you pick your favourite one and learn, ask, interact and engage with the artiste of your choice!
The location of India Music Summit is no accident. Fairmont, Jaipur was especially chosen as the preferred location because of its unique haveli like setting with various courtyards and open spaces allowing the curation of special sessions and baithaks as well as large scale mega concerts. It’s intimate, beautiful and relaxed, much like the city Jaipur, known to champion India’s cultural heritage with numerous events.
A Complete Package
Music will fill your soul at the India Music Summit, but for your stomach there is a giant spread of delicious local and international dishes served up by Fairmont during the event days for lunch and dinner. Day food packages are available at attractive prices for those who are attending the summit – once you choose to eat at the venue, you also get the best chance to interact with the musicians you love.
