It is truly an ancient and global stage for a mystical tradition whose own history witnessed the building of the very walls of the fort of Jodhpur when Rao Jodha laid the first corner stone in 1459.
This weekend I will be performing my new creation El Camino with my inspired and inspiring creative collaborator Youth, and we will be appearing at the World Sufi Spirit Festival in Jodhpur.
Margot Fonteyn was the most famous ballet dancer England ever produced. And she was brought up in Waldeck Road in Ealing, and later in Elm Grove Road by the Common.
A lot of writers don't only earn less than the national average wage, they earn far less than the minimum wage. I'm not talking about writers who are unpublished or indeed, failed by any measure - I'm talking about people whose books have been taken on by bona fide publishers and whose work is building a steady, if not bestselling following.
It's easy to mock the Southbank Centre's Being A Man Festival that explores what it means to be a man in the twenty first century. Why mark out these three days, when they seem to be doing a pretty good job at dominating the other 362 of the year?
Glastonbury has, to the surprise of two cows on Worthy Farm, announced Arcade Fire as the first headliner for 2014. As much as I love Arcade Fire, they've already proven themselves at this level. The meat and veg of this set, therefore, will be the performance of new album Reflektor.
We've all got resolutions for 2014, some of them we might even keep beyond January. But if you are looking for something new this coming year, how about attending salons? Building on an illustrious heritage, the modern salons are cultural showcases that cover a range of subjects from the worlds of science, the arts and psychology.
One of the highlights of the festival is This Way Out - an art and photography collaboration by Boy George and pop painter TradeMark - which had its world premiere on Wednesday in Liverpool at the Camp and Furnace arts venue.
All dressed up and no one to scare? If you're feeling uninspired by another year of Halloween pumpkins and the same old witch hats, then never fear! The onset of November brings weird and wacky celebrations to countries all over the world
In the first week of the (nearly) 28-day cycle of comedy, which organisers only began planning in May, over 550 people have caught festival gigs, with more than 300 tickets already sold for gigs in the coming weeks. With a growing buzz, the atmosphere, they say, is "electric".
The 12 days of the BFI London Film Festival rivals the much more famous 12 days of Christmas as the best week and five days of the year. If you're a London based film nerd, which I'm proud to say I am, it is cinema heaven.
One of the major scoops for the first was the opportunity to host a world premiere of Producing Juliet. This is a new web series written and directed by the award winning Tina Cesa Ward, who also co-produced it...
This weekend will be the 11th year of the Hard Working Class Heroes (HWCH) festival, an event genuinely motivated by heart, enterprise, and imagination. HWCH is a chance for music fans to catch 100 Irish music acts, including 70 brand new artists, in a range of excellent Dublin venues.
As I returned from Bestival roughly two week ago, after an indulgent summer of dragging a beer and mud stained tent up and down the country, I came to a conclusion. Festivals are all, in a way, a bit like Glastonbury.
It's heads up time again, as we've got a bunch of fresh new artists right here that you really need to get your ears acquainted with. The wealth of h...
This was it. The result of three months of hard work was about to be broadcast to a roomful of big-hitters. Three of Britain's top talent agents, and two of the industry's most successful producers of on-screen talent were on the panel; Kirsty Wark was chairing the session...
