Bengaluru will be hosting a unique music festival this winter that celebrates both music and the earth. ‘Echoes of Earth’ claims to be India’s first ecologically-crafted music festival with a focus on the environment and sustainable living. The festival is scheduled for the 26th and 27th of November 2016 at Embassy International Riding School, Bangalore, where around 40 international and Indian musicians are expected to come together to create an atmosphere of soul stirring music.
The artist line-up includes: Susheela Raman, Talvin Singh with Rishabh Seen, Submotion Orchestra, Youngr, Jordan Rakei, Alo Wala, Franca, Sam Maher, The Ska Vengers, Soulmate and many others. Swordfish and Watson’s are organizing Echoes of Earth, where artistes and architects from around the world will collaborate to showcase their art using the practices of upcycling and recycling.
Throughout this unique musical festival, the organizers are promoting ecological approaches and practices through the adoption of the most sustainable means of construction, energy, and waste management. Further, the festival also presents Vadya Vithika, a museum of lost folk and tribal ethno-musical instruments, a property of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. This is a revival and a look-back of sorts to some truly exotic musical tools that have come to be lost over the years.
