Welcome to Global Isai Festival

The Global ISAI Festival was conceptualized by Exodus and launched in 2012 in Chennai, the city thatís rich in cultural heritage with a special affinity towards the performing arts. It was started with a modest vision to introduce the city to a different beat and to showcase the talent of musicians across the world and in India. It has since been described as the global music festival with a local heart.

The festival witnesses close to 20 different artists from various countries, each with an eclectic sound. Global ISAI is inspired by the music festivals of Europe that are usually hosted by smaller villages. The entire community comes together to celebrate the wonders of music, the talented musicians and the spirit of the people. Similarly, Global ISAI showcases great talent, some amazing performances and is a glimpse into the culmination of world culture in music.

Funk, pop rock, fusion, hip hop, folk, blues, jazz - the list is endless! Any genre, any style Ė Global ISAI is a festival for all.

Care for Culture

Care for Culture, an initiative by the Global Isai Festival, reaches out to people with music. The belief that music heals, spreads joy, raises hopes and builds dreams drives this initiative forward. Every year, the artists who collaborate with the Festival perform for those in need of care. Workshops are conducted at various institutions, and musicians connect with the people who benefit from the power of music and the fervor of global culture, to bring about change. In the past years, this initiative has included performances at Childrenís Cancer Hospital, Puzhal Jail for the inmates, School for the Blind, workshops, etc.

This festival invites you to feel the power of music, be part of the change. Itís time to create a culture that cares.
