Hosted by the Royal family of Jodhpur, the Sufi music festival will start at the Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur and will culminate Feb 27 at Ahichhatragarh Fort in Nagaur.

The festival promises to present music traditions from various parts of the world. Performers from Egypt, Turkey, France, Pakistan, Paris, Mongolia and Afghanistan will showcase their talent. From India, musicians from Kerala, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan will be seen participating in the fest.

"Music is a language that transcends all barriers across the globe... Don't miss this exquisite occasion and experience the magic!" international singer Sting, patron of the festival, said in a statement.
