Combining music and philanthropy, 'Kasauli Rhythm and Blues Festival' (KRBF)- India's biggest music-based fundraisers have announced their eighth edition, which is scheduled on April 19 and 20.
In view of helping underprivileged kids suffering from Congenital heart defects, KRBF has been organized by Genesis Foundation as a platform to bring together music fans to donate generously and fund this noble cause.
The two-day mega-musical opus will feature India's top musicians and solo artists.
Scheduling three performances on April 19, the festival promises to start on a groovy note with the four-member, Mumbai based Soul/JAzz/R&B band called the 'Shubhangi Joshi Collective'. The other major star on the first day is Parikrama of 'But It Rained' fame. Parikrama, the Delhi based, seven-eight member rock band is touted to be the main attraction of the event. The last participant on day one is Maati Baani- a Mumbai based, husband-wife duo Nirali and Kartik, who are currently India's top classical and pop fusion couple.
Genesis Foundation revealed the itinerary tweeting:
The second day is filled with four performances. Hari-Sukhmani will be bringing their eclectic sound, fusing traditional Punjabi folk music with electronic music, inspired by Sufi Poets. The other duo will be Jazz and Indian classical based Bryden-Parth. The second day also features Thaikkudam Bridge, a rock-classical band and singer Soundarya.
Genesis Foundation tweeted the second day's itinerary:
Genesis Foundation had saved 25 children with last years funds and aim at saving more children this year with the funds raised through KRBF. They focus on helping children suffering from Congenital Heart Defects, which means any kind of heart defects. They aim at funding kids from families with a monthly income of less than Rs.10,000.
