Organizers Speak

Taalbelia is a festival event Intellectual property by Event Crafter in collaboration with Castle Mandawa. Speaking about it, Siddhartha Chaturvedi- CEO, Event Crafter says, “Taalelia is a boutique festival in the truest of senses, as a festival, it offers you intimacy and comfort which gets supercharged with the intellectual infusion of visual art, adventure, royal hospitality and the most amazing musical performances. Taalbelia as a concept is not just unique but also very innovative and pro-life. We have our roots in Rajasthan and it’s the roots of Rajasthan that have traveled musically across the globe and transformed cultures and traditions with its nomadic vibe. We had been looking for a perfect match in terms of a venue that brought alive the glory of Rajasthan in a mesmeric manner and gave us ample of scope to curate a music festival, which would surpass all past experiences to create a new benchmark for innovative and concept-based music festivals through its rich and vivid set of experiences.”

He adds, “We have always endeavored to give our local talent a platform that delivers recognition and opportunity to them on a global level and Taalbelia proves to be one of the best platforms in this regard. As it’s a festival with multi-genre music as its mainstay, there would be a rich confluence of music styles ranging from Rajasthani Folk, Blues, Jazz, EDM & Underground to mesmerize your senses. All you need to do is just come over and you would never forget these 4 days of peace, love, and music.”

Shivarjun Mandawa, Director - Castle Mandawa Resorts remarks, “Our family has patronized the art, music and traditions of Shekhawati since time immemorial and being a part of the royal Mandawa tradition the onus rests on us to revive the glory of our land. We had been mulling over the possibilities to achieve the same and that’s when we came through the concept of Taalbelia and we decided to bring alive this concept which not only marks a distinct celebration for our city but also provides international exposure to our artists and opens various opportunities for our local community to benefit and enrich itself. We are very positively looking forward to the world to give Taalbelia its love and support and encourage our initiative to revive the glorious days of our land.”
