Dear Friends

Happy New Year to all of you. The last year ended with Kalashree successfully presenting two fundraisers in Kolkata and Delhi with the band Global Conversation featuring Kala Ramnath( violin), Aditya Kalyanpur( Tabla), George Brooks( Saxophone), Kai Eckhart( Bass), Osam Ezzeldin(Piano and Keyboards)and Dafnis Prieto(Drums). The music presented was Raga influenced Jazz and Jazz inflected Raga. We have also begun classes for underprivileged children partnering with some NGO’s in Kolkata. The curriculum is planned in such a way that children get an insight into the three main genres in music, Indian classical, Western Classical and Jazz thereby learning to hear and play, read and write music and improvize. This would be achieved in a span of five years and once the fifth year finishes, the child would be equipped to pursue any genre of music if he or she wishes to for higher education but even otherwise the foundation has given good values to the child and more importantly a love for music and thus created a good listener.

More in my next…

Have your say
