Event Brief
Paddy Fields is India’s only music festival that takes the beauty of folk music from across the country and packages and presents it to an audience weaned on Bollywood and International music!

It’s the festival where music lovers discover traditional music they have never heard, are introduced to artistes they’ve never seen and watch familiar artistes perform sets that are brand new to both the artiste and the audience!

A music mélange like no other, Paddy Fields caters to people who love pop, rock, jazz, classical….. you get the picture! A music lover’s delight!!

Paddy Fields is back for a third season with another cracking concept that explores the traditions of Indian music and addresses an age old question…. did Indian classical music have its origins in folk music?

So we did a little asking, delved a little and educated ourselves about Samagana, Jatigana, Deshi and Margi music, Persian influences on Indian music and how Dhruvapad led to the Dhrupad form of singing. We heard fascinating stories about instruments like the iktara and dotara being the precursor to the sitar and how the table developed from the dholak!!

It all made for an obviously fascinating and exciting concept for Paddy Fields 2018.

Jugalbandi: The Classicism Of Folk Fusion. This is where the structured meets the free form, where stories are told in raga and where musical boundaries are pushed and walls broken down. An experience of a lifetime for both the audience and some of the performers as well! All packaged to ensure two evenings of sheer entertainment, with perhaps a bit of education of our great musical traditions thrown in!
