Mountain Music Festival Roots & Raga

Welcome from Shivam ~ _ ~

Firstly this is a first of its kind festival organised by musicians for musicians. I am proud to announce that all invited at this stage are of world class standards which I personally validate and thank everyone of them for committing to this special community based event. Secondly this could become an annual event as we are connected with Woodford and world music artists performing from there so it is a special time to be apart of its beginning.

We have already a confirmed line up of international and top notch Indian classical musicians such as Taro Terahara, Tahir Qawwal, Tetsuya & Yuki Kaneko & have decided to bring in more world music artists to bring the event more diversity in sound and vibe such as Si Mullumby and indigenous local Indigenous elder Lewis Walker who will open the ceremony with a welcome to land;
combining this tradition we will bring in Indian Drums & dancers symbolising the union of world cultures and respect to the natives of this land. For the serious music lovers we will culminate a traditional dawn raga for the morning sunrise with our Indian Classical Musicians which will be in a private venue announced later for invited friends & those supporting the festival.

Stage Note: There will be 2 stages alternating during set up and pack up times of each other. The smaller will also act as a space for jam and open circle songs and chanting. Live music will go into the night with ambient, food and chill out zones and room for any artists to meet and get together to play.

Japan is a great country of world music and shows this through its development in many world cultures in one; more than most other countries I have been. So having many artists from there we will also focus on a theme of fundraising with the Heart for Fukushima foundation towards helping The children of Fukushima and sponsor them here to byron for a kind of health retreat in the nature.
