Fundraiser for the marginalised Musical fraternity
Soulful Indian Classical music, those pulsating percussionists, beautiful folk dances & songs, tribal music, traditional Hindustani & Carnatic Jugalbandis, devotional music, the orchestras of Bollywood… what if we never get to enjoy these ever… after this pandemic?
Our lives, weddings & events can never be the same without music, dance, percussion, colour and magic? With all performances cancelled and no other earning opportunities’ owing to social distancing norms, the marginalised music fraternity & instrument makers are struggling to survive…
Musicians contribute vibrancy and positivity in every important occasion in India. And yet artistes are amongst the most ignored community. With no help or support, many face severe existential issues and depression.
