Jaipur/IBNS: Go on an intense musical journey at the Jaipur Literature Festival to be held in the Pink City in February this year.

The Jaipur Music Stage (JMS) will feature musical performances each evening from February 1-3, 2024.

Headliners include Alif, Harpreet, Prabh Deep, The Revisit Project, Salman Elahi, The Tapi Project, When Chai Met Toast  to name a few.

According to the organisers, JMS will present a diverse array of artists from the Indian subcontinent, offering a rich tapestry of musical genres that reflect a fusion of style, sound, and history.

Popular singer, songwriter, and poet Alif (Mohammad Muneem) will be performing on the first evening.

He is the recipient of multiple awards, including the Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival Award for the single Lalnawat, IRAA Award for the single Like a Sufi, and the IIMA Award for ‘Best Folk Song’ - Ride Home.

Alif recently featured in Coke Studio Bharat's Season 2 where he was the vocal composer for Kya Karie Korimol.

The evening will also feature The Tapi Project, comprising Yogendra Saniyawala (acoustic & bass guitar, lyrics, and composition), Swati Minaxi (voice), Gaurav Kapadia (drums) and Biju Nambiar (keyboards, bass and drums).

The band experiments with intricate genres in music like folk, trip-hop, jazz, and ambient textures and uses folk instruments as an essential part of their band.

The second evening of JMS will feature Prabh Deep, a Delhi-based multi-faceted artist, and an accomplished story teller.

While ‘Class-Sikh’ was a deeply autobiographical project, Deep showcased his ability to craft intricate and vivid narratives that spoke to larger audiences in subsequent releases.

This can be seen on his ‘K I N G’ EP and his critically acclaimed ‘Tabia.’

The second evening will also feature a performance by The Revisit Project, a group which unravels the complexity and rigour of jazz with a distinctive and characteristic twist.

Their music combines a solid groove, old-school funk, and rhythmic jazz while offering pointed observations about life, love, and politics in India.

Originating in 2014 as a tribute band, they sought to rediscover some of the lost treasures of Hindi film music, infusing contemporary Funk & Jazz fusion into their renditions.

The final evening will feature popular singer-songwriters Harpreet and Salman Elahi.

Harpreet is a versatile artist who sings original musical compositions in Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Assamese, Rajasthani, and Haryanvi.

He is best known for creating musical scores to epic works of humanist poets like Kabir and Bulleh Shah.

Mumbai-based musician Salman Elahi’s soothing voice has captured the hearts of millions with his popular song Pahadon Mein.

Writing and singing primarily in Urdu and Hindi, Elahi believes in using his music to express his thoughts about life and self-discovery.

The evening will also showcase India's ever-evolving band When Chai Met Toast (WCMT).

The band consists of vocalist Ashwin Gopakumar, guitarist Achyuth Jaigopal, keyboard player Palee Francis and drummer Pai Sailesh.

Formed in 2016 with their debut EP 'Joy of Little Things,' the quartet swiftly gained attention for their unique multilingual lyrics, sing-along choruses, and incorporation of acoustic folk instruments.

A night market offering a variety of merchandise, including instruments, music technology, indie label music, and other paraphernalia, will add excitement to the Jaipur Music Stage evenings.
