On the occasion of World Music Day this year which will be celebrated on the 21st of June, Richa Chadha and Krishan Jagota, the founders of the initiative- The Kindry, have a very special event planned on it’s handle.
On this musical day, they will celebrate kindness and compassion through the medium of music. Richa and Krishan, joined by Ali Fazal will be the first to host a live session on World Music Day. During this session, they would act as moderators to numerous musical performances.
The line-up of the live consists of renowned artists including Hollywood musician, Greg Ellis; Mohd Muneem, a popular singer and poet from the valleys of Kashmir; Nirali Kartik and Kartik Shah who are the founders of Maati Baani, a popular world music band that has a musical blend of Indian classical and world folk music.
The duo went to feature budding musicians on their handle - specifically those that create something on the topic of humanism and kindness.
Richa tells us, “The main object of The Kindry is to amplify stories of hope from around us, and sometimes a long essay may not communicate what a song can in a matter of minutes. Music can heal, music has no language. The live session is our way of giving a virtual, collaborative jam session and celebrating this day through kindness, and I think it’ll be a blast so I'd definitely suggest everyone to tune in.”
Krishan says, “On this day, it is absolutely essential that everyone has free access to music. On The Kindry, it’ll be a celebration of coming together through the medium of music and magnifying emotions of kindness as well as compassion. Through this experience, we hope to connect and influence one another on the page even more positively.”
Richa along with Krishan Jagota started ‘The Kindry’ to create an alternative reality, where people value kindness and integrity and are treated as fluff. It is an attempt to recognize hard and brave work as well as positive actions during these worst of times done by ordinary people of the country, our real heroes who have risen to the challenge.
