HYDERABAD: Ruhaniyat, the largest music festival is all set to start its journey of spreading peace and harmony. In its 14th year now, Ruhaniyat will be presented on December 14 at Taramati Baradari Amphitheatre.
What makes Ruhaniyat a soulful experience is that the performers of this festival are carriers of living tradition; simple, unheard of but immensely talented people from across the country that live the teachings through their dedication to the art.
This year, the festival will feature a unique Indo-African production featuring an African Mystic singer playing Kora, a 13th century instrument; along with desert musicians from Rajasthan. There will be also artists from West Bengal, Punjab and Maharashtra.
“In these 14 years we have received a lot of love, appreciation and enthusiasm from the audiences, performers and corporate partners! What is even more satisfying is the fact that the performers, most of them discoveries of Ruhaniyat, have now become well-known faces and are being invited for various festivals not just in India but in other countries as well. Through out the journey of 14 years, 10 cities each year the festival has touched the lives of over 2000 artists and ensured that the near-extinct art forms continue for some more time. We look forward to continuing the journey for many more years to come,” says Mahesh Babu, managing director, Banyan Tree Events.
