This year the Jaipur Music Stage celebrates “all things music”, with a variety of music genres coming together on the same platform, along with exciting collaborations between diverse artists, with the aim of transcending borders, genres, and prejudices.


Rooted in the heart of India but flavoured with offerings from across the globe, the Stage features a variety of artists from the international spectrum with a multi-genre abundance in style, sound, and history. Be it world music, ghazals, funk, rock or the Blues, the Jaipur Music Stage 2019 is a music festival like no other embodying variety, excellence, and collaboration. The Stage, running parallel to the Jaipur Literature Festival, will present - apart from some breathtaking evenings of performances - workshops, masterclasses, talks and sessions giving music-lovers a chance to interact with musicians, learn more about instruments and nuances within musical genres. Exciting collaborations between artists will salute the essential spirit of music – that of the freedom to create.  The Jaipur Music Stage is more than just a place for literature-enthusiasts to unwind after an exhilarating day of talks: it is a musical confluence opening audiences up to new sounds.

 

A music market with a range of merchandise including instruments, music technology, music from indie music labels and other paraphernalia, will add sizzle to this unique medley of the popular and the subtle.


The Jaipur Music Stage Conversations is a series of daily sessions with artists and influencers on their craft coupled with a set of interactions with renowned musicians and singers.

These will be spread across two venues: panels with artists will take place at the Clarks Amer Poolside Stage ahead of the daily evening performances while the artiste interactions for a select group of attendees will be at the Wolf Restaurant.

Pop Goes Music! How Independent Music Popped Up and Grew Beyond Movie Soundtracks

Usha Uthup, Rahul Ram and Chayan Adhikari in conversation with Sarthak Kaushik 


This session is all about the ‘how’ — from a sari-clad Usha Uthup singing cabaret to a kurta-wearing Rahul Ram wielding his bass with his vocals making the audience sway to folk songs sung along the Narmada —  music has forged its own path away from the mainstream. Uthup's iconic status is undisputed, Ram has been a pioneer with the groundbreaking Indian Ocean while Chayan Adhikari is one of the most prolific voices within the Indian indie scene with his classical fusion band Advaita.

3 G (enerations): The Heartbeat of a Generation: How a Family Made the World Sway to Their Percussive Genius

Vikku Vinayakram, Selvaganesh and Swaminathan in conversation


A conversation between Grammy Award-winner Vikku Vinayakram, his son Selvaganesh and grandson Swaminathan, all of whom have excelled within the Indian Carnatic tradition of percussion. 3 G explores the journey of the Vinayakram family and their close connection with the Carnatic musical tradition. Vinayakram is a perfect example of letting the talent speak for itself. In the 1970s, he provided a percussive platform for Shakti, a band that defined jazz fusion music with John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussain at the helm, to launch a musical revolution. He then played a leading role in firing up the imagination of a whole generation of musicians in the traditions of Carnatic percussion. Selvaganesh has carried that torch forward with his mastery of the kanjeera. In turn, his son is now making a name for himself; a testament to the family’s legacy as they pass their talents on from generation to generation.
