Blue Lotus Festival, part 2 (of 2)

In February this year the first edition of the Blue Lotus Festival took place in Pushkar. Pushkar is a historic town with hundreds of temples in the state Rajasthan. The special thing about this festival is the devotion to traditional music. So no fusion with rock, pop or jazz, but real Indian folk and soefi from different parts of India. In two parts we will play music from different artists who performed at the festival.
