Less than 3% children in India’s public schools have systematic opportunities to know and learn any form of music

Since 2016, we are working towards creating a society with equitable music access and learning opportunities for children from the most marginalised communities.

What started as a weekend activity in 2016, has turned into a music movement which is directly impacting 3500+ children across 45 schools and community centres and providing sustainable livelihood opportunities to 100+ young musicians!

We believe that all Indian art forms are practising art forms – their practice and Sadhana helps us be more sensitive human beings and creates a strong foundation for a meaningful life.
