Concept Note
As the past three editions have proved, we take our music at Paddy Fields extremely seriously. That’s why there is an interesting theme to the festival each year, in an attempt to create new music and new musical experiences for a discerning audience. Happily, we have received positive feedback on the music, the performances and the presentation of the folk fusion genre of music that is seeing a rapidly growing audience. It’s a tribute to the artistes and the strength of folk music.

So it’s time now to say thank you to those wonderful originators of folk songs, people who were responsible for creating the songs, making them popular and in some cases even defining a genre of music themselves.

Celebrating The Women Of Folk And Fusion Music
Yet, we can’t be different just for the sake of being different. There has to be some logic to it.

If it is true that folk music is an oral tradition, that it is about stories being passed down generations in song, stop to think. Whom does a child hear it’s first story from? It’s mother, isn’t it?

Paddy Fields 2016

India's First Folk And Fusion Music Festival

In 2016, a company called Nesco called us and said that they wanted to get into the entertainment space. As owners of The Bombay Exhibition Centre in Goregaon, it seemed a natural extension of their current business of renting out their 65 acre property.

We pitched several ideas to them and bless their soul, they homed in on wanting to do a Folk & Fusion Music festival as against opting for more obviously commercial music. It was like a God send and we had a great time conceiving and curating it. One thing was for certain, this was about the music and only about the music.
