SANDSCAPE, is an Indo-European Collective that reflects a time and space of experimentation and celebration across the desert through new forms of music, dance & creative visuals. A concept that talks of multimedia ‘Jugalbandi’ between Folk & Electronic Artists, Alternative Urban Music Acts, Regional Folk Acts supported by 3D Visual Mapping, Body Performances & Interactive Arts.
SANDSCAPE wishes to offer an immersive and respectful approach to cultural exploration and tourism, with a desire to bridge between local, national and international cultures; proximity between the guests and the artists; and proximity, with the Thar Desert itself.
