#MusicForACause | The 'Parikrama Family' Gets Candid With News18

Feb 24, 2017 12:00 PM IST iVideos iVideos

Rock 'n' Roll band Parikrama began their musical journey in the 1990s, and since then have created some memorable pieces while experimenting with possibly every type of instruments.

In an exclusive interview with News18, the members of the band spoke about how they realised music was their calling. "It was something that gave us a lot of satisfaction, a lot of happiness, as it still does. Music is something that actually is so relaxing. You can listen to music in any form of emotion that you're going through," they said.

A firm believer of inclusion of music in curriculum as well as making it accessible for underprivileged kids, Subir and Nitin Malik, along with their family, have initiated to donate instruments 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 they have done their bit, here’s a chance to make a contribution and bring some difference in the lives of these little learners.
