#MusicForACause | How Vishal Dadlani is Supporting Less-Privileged Kids

Feb 16, 2017 04:43 PM IST iVideos iVideos

Bollywood music composer and singer Vishal Dadlani of the Vishal-Shekhar duo remains in news quite often. Be it for his outspoken nature or for his foot-tapping music, he's always catching eyeballs. But this time, the reason will bring a smile to everyone's face.

When Vishal joined Pentagram, it gave him a channel to explore in terms of expression through music. "I was a really crazy kid. Really aggressive, really violent, got into a lot of trouble for no reason and music literally saved my life," he said.

A firm believer of inclusion of music in curriculum as well as making it accessible for underprivileged kids, Vishal has initiated to donate a guitar to Music Basti, a Delhi-based NGO that connects at-risk children with musicians and aims to nurture confidence through a creative and joyful music-led learning experience.

Since efforts like these need combined support, News18 has partnered with the crowd-funding organisation, BitGiving, to raise funds for Music Basti.

While he has done his bit, here’s a chance to make a contribution and bring some difference in the lives of these little learners.
