Music can change the world because it can change people – Bono.
Music has the power to bring people together. So, it was only a matter of time before it would be used for a good cause.
Seagram’s 100 Pipers encourages us to ‘Be Remembered For Good’, and for their #PlayForACause they’ve on-boarded the iconic British band The Dire Straits Experience to provide sustainable drinking water resources in Rajasthan’s villages.
This will be the first time that The Dire Straits Experience will be performing in India, and they’re excited to be a part of this cause. The band consists of Chris White (for saxophone, percussion, and vocals), Chris Whitten (for drums) and Terence Reis (on lead vocals and guitar).
During a press release, Chris White added –
“India has always been on our list and we are very excited to play in India. Our 2 city tour in India, In Gurgaon and Bangalore, is to support the 100 Pipers ‘Play for a cause‘ Initiative to provide water to villages in Rajasthan. The power of Music is incredible and it brings together people across nations and cultures. We are happy to become a part of this great event which is bringing music and artists together to make a difference to society”.
The concert is to support and provide for the construction and conservation of water structures in Rajasthan. They’ve tied up with Advit Foundation, an NGO working for environmental resource conservation, which will handle the project.
