The Raag Mantra Music Festival - Meet The Maestros seeks to bring the best of Indian classical music to iconic heritage venues across India.


Indian classical music is timeless, ethereal and steeped in history and legend. It is the embodiment of India’s cultural legacy and takes one back to durbar evenings in Mughal courts when musicians would serenade royalty and the aristocracy. The Raag Mantra Music Festival seeks to recreate the magic of those evenings by bringing stellar Indian classical musicians to venues synonymous with India’s heritage.



In 2018, the Raag Mantra Music Festival brings the biggest names in Hindustani classical music together for the performance of a lifetime. On the 9th of December, under Delhi’s architectural landmark - the Qutb Minar, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Ustad Rashid Khan and Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan will take the stage for a concert which has been twenty years in the making.
