When not at the festival, explore Jodhpur’s fragrant spice markets, delicious food, and quiet gardens. Our Rajasthan Itinerary will also introduce you to Delhi, India’s capital city, and Jaipur. The Jodhpur Music Festival itinerary designed to bring people together in celebration of the power of folk music to preserve, challenge, and re-define how we see and understand our own narratives.
