The festival provides an opportunity for musicians from different gypsy traditions to collaborate, learn and create music. It highlights the rich heritage of Rajasthan and the importance of keeping folk music alive, as well as presenting a more contemporary view of desert music and dance.
Close on the heels of this festival comes the Elephant Festival, held on the day before Holi. This animal-inspired celebration features parades of majestic beasts, colorful decorations and tons of live entertainment that is sure to hold the attention of any traveler.
