Event Description: The Classic Bagh Festival presents a unique and intimate festival of classical music and poetry set within the grounds of Sundar Nursery.

Presented by Jodhpur RIFF and the British Council, in association with the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. The festival will open with a lakeside dawn chorus (6:00 -8:00am) of vocal recitals from the Hindustani, Sufi, Bhajan, Shabad and Qawwali traditions by the remarkable singers Smita Bellur and Jasleen Kaur Monga.

Later in the morning (8:15 - 11:00am), in the heritage monument-straddled garden north of the Amphitheatre, a short set by the Langa Ensemble will flag off the session, followed by Delhi’s own renowned Qawwali singer Dhruv Sangari ‘Bilal Chishti’ followed by a series of classical-sufi-folk covers by emerging Delhi artist Bawari Basanti.

The festival will draw to a close later in the evening (6:00 pm-10:00 pm) with an eclectic set - a special Jangda recital from the Manganiyar tradition led by Barkat Khan, ghazals by emerging artist Sraboni Chaudhary and soul-stirring performances by renowned masters Ustad Saeed Zafar Khan, now the Khalifa of the Dilli Gharana, and Qawaal Bachchey Warsi Brothers, performing in Sunder Nursery’s amphitheatre.

Designed as an immersive and environmentally conscious experience, the free one-day festival has been developed as a site-conscientious response to the luscious green setting of Sunder Nursery.

Both morning performance sets will be open to anyone visiting Sunder Nursery, encouraging new audiences to interact with the specially curated music.
