It’s true when people say that music is food for the soul and what better than rejuvenating your inner self with blues music which has the ability to transport you to a totally different zone. A genre that originated in the Mississippi Delta by African Americans has its roots in African musical traditions, spirituals and African-American work songs. We can say that the blues music genre has influenced all the other genres like jazz, rock n roll, country etc. Such is the enigma of blues that once you listen to it you can’t help but keep coming back.

And now the city of Mumbai is soon going to be hit by the blues. Mahindra Blues Festival, the only one in the city to bring world renowned artists from the genre on stage, will be held on February 10 and 11, 2018 at the iconic Mehboob Studio. Out of the many concerts lined up in Mumbai in the coming months, this is one which provides the audiences a rich musical experience. Started in 2011, the festival is now in its 8th year and it’s just getting bigger and better.

This year the lineup comprises legends like the Godfather of British Blues John Mayall who has inspired the likes of Eric Clapton with his powerful music. Apart from him, the stage will also be graced by other international artists like Coco Montaya, Walter Wolfman Washington and the Roadmasters, the Canadian blues sensation Layla Zoe and our very own blues band from Mumbai, Blackstratblues, a brain child of child prodigy Warren Mendonsa. The other members of the band are Jai Row Kavi (Drums), Adi Mistry (Bass) and Beven Fonseca (Keyboards).

Apart from the continuous musical treat from these famous blues artists, the event will also celebrate food and wine thus making this event of the most memorable ones in the city’s cultural landscape. If you are someone who loves soulful rhythm, Mahindra Blues Festival is for you.

An extension of the world renowned Mahindra Group’s cultural outreach programmes, The Mahindra Blues festival is organized in association with the Times Group. It is co-sponsored by Gledo, and The Glenlivet books.
