Folk music has its origin in the soul of its people. It began as a form of passing on stories & legends through song.
As the root of all music, it is an expression of life within a community. Its influence is evident in all other genres of music as well. Today, we can hear definite elements of folk and fusion in Bollywood music, pop music and even in rock.
With the introduction of Paddy Fields, the first of its kind folk and fusion music festival in India,
we hope to delve a little deeper into the origin of this traditional form and explore the purity of its sound.
We also want to present it in its modern day context so
as to enrapture the music lover as it transforms from
traditional to modern through fusion.
Paddy Fields promises to take folk music to a new level by giving regional musicians and artists a larger platform.
The two-day event will see some of India’s most talented and celebrated folk and fusion artists performing for
a niche but captivated audience of music enthusiasts at the Bombay Exhibition Center in Goregaon.
