Multi-award winning travel company Original Travel has joined forces with Toploader guitarist, Dan Hipgrave, to launch Original Music Travel designed to offer music aficionados enthralling experiences with their unforgettable portfolio of trips, festivals and concert packages to a variety of colourful destinations.
This unique collaboration of music and travel has resulted in a range of trips created around musical cultures from the soulful blues and electrifying jazz of American Deep South to the emotional duende of authentic Andalucian Flamenco.
Those seeking more passion can immerse themselves in the steamy Salsa of Havana, feel the hypnotic rhythms of Samba in Brazil or discover the magic and mystery of the Tango in Argentina. There will be more than 20 trips to choose from by the end of the year.
Dan Hipgrave's passion for music is truly international and by drawing on his exceptional range of contacts, Original Music Travel has access to local music experts, professors, musicians and friends of music legends. Their priceless local knowledge will take visitors under the skin of the music scene to bars and clubs normally only available to local enthusiasts.
For example, blues lovers travelling to the States can meet the man who taught Elvis to play the blues and catch a jaw-dropping performance at Po' Monkey's, one of the original and most legendary juke joints.
Original Music Travel also presents VIP packages to the world's most enchanting music festivals. In April, music lovers can enjoy a stellar line-up packed with the biggest names in pop, rock, indie and dance at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Colorado Desert, it is America's answer to Glastonbury but soaked in Californian sunshine. In May, clubbers can dance deep into the night at Turkey's fabulously boutique beach festival Sunsplash in Antalya, which brings together some of the UK's hottest DJs.
For a breathtaking visual and auditory experience, Giuseppe Verdi's monumental opera Aida on the Bregenz Floating Stage this summer promises to be the most spectacular show on earth. Those wanting to venture further afield can enjoy a tour of Rajasthan's rich folk music traditions from Delhi to Jaipur ending at the annual Jodhpur RIFF, India's leading folk festival. Original Music Travel covers all music genres and tastes with an impressive handpicked selection of events.
As well as organising bespoke itineraries, Original Music Travel's experts can arrange VVIP treatment at some of the world's best concerts including meetings with artists, access backstage and to after show parties, fast track entry to events and priority seating or private boxes. Music lovers can get a taste for the VIP treatment at the only European Bon Jovi show in 2010, when this world's biggest live band takes up residence at London's O2 Arena.
All this leaves you free to get into the rhythm of your holiday.
