Ahmedabad and its Sufi Music lovers are in for a treat as “Ruhaniyat” – the 12th All India Sufi and Mystic Music Festival is coming to town.

Organized for the 1st time in Ahmedabad, Banyan Trees Ruhaniyat is India`s biggest Sufi and Mystic Music festival travelling across the country for the past ten years. Besides presenting the best of classical and folk artistes of the country and beyond, Banyan Tree has been actively involved in discovering unheard of forms and talents from remote villages, fakirs, mystics, Sufi qawwals from all over the country and beyond and presenting them to different parts of the country. Almost 2500 such artistes have been featured in Ruhaniyat till date.
The Ruhaniyat festival started in the year 2001 is the brainchild of Mahesh Babu and Nandini Mahesh, the Directors of Banyan Tree Events.
