Celebrating women in folk

  • RRAP Music Museum & Hub jaipur (map)

This Friday is International Women’s Day, and to celebrate we’re holding an event showcasing incredible female talent from Rajasthan.

Sumitra Kamad, an internationally-acclaimed folk singer and songwriter from the village of Jaitaran (Pali), will bless us with the power of her instantly recognisable voice. Sumitra needs little introduction as she has long been a folk emblem and an inspiration for many followers of Rajasthan’s living traditions, having performed in festivals nationally as well as around the world. She was notably an integral part of the “Dharohar Project” where she collaborated with renowned global artists Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons. A symbol for the future of women in Rajasthani folk, we are delighted to welcome her to the RRAP Music Museum & Hub for this very special day.

All donations raised from this event will go towards future women-led events and development workshops, establishing our vital commitment to the nourishment of women in folk in Rajasthan and beyond.

This event was conceptualised by women, organised by women and will be executed by women.

This event is open to all & entry to the event is free.
