The soul of our Festival is to promote peaceful coexistence and the search for sacred Beauty, through musical and artistic dialogue between different religious traditions and beliefs of the world. That is why, despite the difficult circumstances that the world is going through, we are delighted to announce the next edition of our Festival which will be streamed online from the city of Old Goa - UNESCO Heritage City, and will include concerts from 7 countries and 12 cities around the world.
The Ketevan Music Festival was born in 2015 to inspire a place for artistic, spiritual, and musical dialogue. In our scenarios we present concerts where artists of different traditions and religions share their music and art, to develop the idea of artistic coexistence, as the engine that drives humanity towards cultural, social, and human coexistence, in mutual respect and acceptance. Founded in 2015 by Dr. Santiago Lusardi Girelli & Mr. Rudolph L. Kammermeier our Festival offers music programs, courses, and conferences with artists from several traditions from around the world: Carnatic, Christian, Sufi, Hindustani, Jewish, Orthodox, and many others. The Coexistence leitmotiv (motto) leads our difficult task of intercultural dialogue and tolerance with immense respect and understanding of all traditions.
