Music to match your mood!
Aiming to develop cultural tourism in the city, it is a platform for upcoming artistes to perform at the grand stage every weekend.

The festival is held in collaboration with Department of Art, Culture and Languages, Govt. of Delhi. Last Sunday, Dilli Haat Janak Puri experienced a soothing ambiance with thoughtful singing of Zafar Hayat Nizami from Urdu Academy. He held the audience attention by performing sufiana Qawwali Dama Dum Mast Kalandar along with other creations of Hazrat Ameer Khusrao. Zafar Hayat Nizami’s group consisted of eight members and he belongs to Sikandarabad Gharana.

Ashok Mastie, famed Punjabi singer and who performed on the  2nd weekend of the festival says, ‘Dilli Haat Utsav is an attractive concept giving a live platform to artistes. A live stage show is always better than recordings. The mood of the audience while the performance, is in itself the first barrier to judge the talent. There is no better judge than the audience.’

He further adds, ‘I am happy that artists are getting a systematic platform to perform. It is extremely positive to see that Dilli Haats have opened gates for new artists. Apart working hard on performing, now the only work that a talented person needs to do is register with respective department for a slot.’ Ashok Mastie who had also made a guest appearance at the 8th weekend of the festival, had on stage talked about the Punjabi talent pool. He is currently working on his upcoming Bollywood projects.
