Are you a solo Mouth Harpist?
Or are you in a band or musical project that features the Mouth Harp in your music?
We would like to invite you to perform on one of our two festival stages.
Every performance at the World Mouth Harp Festival of India should include at least one Mouth Harp, either as an existing element of each musical project or through guest collaborations with other Mouth Harpists.
If you do not already have a Mouth Harpist in your band, then we will be happy to assist you in finding someone to collaborate with!
To register to perform, please fill out the application below.
Are you a visual or performing artist, and would like to dance, spin fire or paint while bands are playing? Then please fill out this application as well!
To simply participate in the festival as an individual musician in the Band Scramble or any other active Creative Collaboration, no pre-registration is required. Simply bring your instrument(s) and your collaborative spirit, and register with us on arrival.
By submitting this application, you acknowledge that you will be responsible for organizing your own logistics to attend the World Mouth Harp Festival of India.
Free of cost to all participants, this is is a volunteer based, participant-powered festival, therefore we do not have any means to assist you with your expenses of travel or accommodation. Meals, however, will be provided on the day of performance to all artists scheduled to perform during the festival.
The World Mouth Harp Festival of India is a grassroots project conceived with a mission of establishing a platform for Mouth Harp players and musicians of all kinds from countries worldwide to connect, share, teach, and perform. Showcasing the versatility of this instrument through a diversity of musical genres including presentations of both traditional and contemporary styles of playing, together with providing opportunities and inspiration for creative collaborations between musicians, the continuing vision of the World Mouth Harp Festival of India is to establish popular recognition for the Mouth Harp as a contemporary musical instrument in our society today.
Unlike commercial music festivals where artists are booked as entertainment and tickets are sold to the general public to cover necessary expenses, at the conceptual core of the World Mouth Harp Festival of India is a community platform of skill-sharing and personal involvement. Everyone is invited to participate in this project, either by performing, teaching, organizing or simply attending, and each person is a contributor to the spirit of the festival in one way or another. Therefore, general admission to all concerts, workshops and presentations remain free of charge with no tickets for sale and no financial sponsors.
