Indulge in a royal experience with Taalbelia

New Delhi: Music, art and crafts workshops, along with royal hospitality and gastronomic delights will be a part of an upcoming multi-format cultural festival.
Taalbelia, the four-day long ethnic extravaganza, seeks to reinvent destination for music festivals while experimenting with different music genres.
The festival, which will begin in a quaint Shekhawati town Mandawa on January 26, promises more than 30 acts with an ideal combination of art and crafts and royal hospitality.
The cultural affair will host contemporary, classical and folk music to enthrall the residents between two majestic venues– Castle Mandawa and Desert Resort.
The roots of Rajasthan have travelled musically across the globe, transforming cultures and traditions with its nomadic vibe.
“Taalbelia serves as a platform for multi-genre artists to come together and create magic,” a spokesperson of the organisers, Event Crafter said.
The workshops will be incorporating interactive sessions with disc jockeys to understand console jamming.
The visitors will also get a chance to learn wind percussion instrument, ‘Morchang’ and understand the rhythm of the ‘khartaal’.
They will also get a chance to polish their shooting skills or learn pottery around the potter’s wheel and get familiar with the beautiful horses at the royal stables.
The  festival is also offering a crash course on signature Rajasthani Lac bangles along with sand surfing and dirt biking.
Taalbelia’s Gourmet Fiesta will include cuisine and authentic Shekhawati delicacies with an array of fine culinary delights.
The cultural festival, which will be organised in a joint collaboration with the Royal Family of Mandawa, will serve seasonal specials made from gram flour, dry vegetables, bajra and corn, Hot Raab (local soup) along with traditional Rajasthani favourites such as ‘Kaachri Ki Lunji’, ‘pyaazki sabzi’, ‘gatta’ will be followed with ‘Mangolian’ and ‘Mexican’ specialties.
“The glory of the land is frozen in time, its art; its music and its culinary finesse still mesmerize our senses.
But, owing to the lack of conviction led initiatives; the city of Mandawa yearns to regain its erstwhile charm and magic, which Taalbelia seeks to change,” the spokesperson said.
The multi format cultural festival comes to an end on January 29. (PTI)
