As you all know that Covid 19 has impacted many lives globally. It also wreaked havoc in the lives of the Indian folk artists who were a daily wage earner, leaving them idle and cash strapped.
Indian and especially Rajasthani Folk Music has always enticed the world and due to the pandemic people are not able to witness such performances and at the same time artists are unable to showcase their talent.
Sagacious IP being a socially inclined and community driven organization has curated a virtual concert for its customers to bridge this gap and help audience witness soulful Rajasthani folk music and culture from comfort of their homes while giving opportunity to the daily wage-earning folk artists from Rajasthan (India) to perform virtually and earn in these discerning times.
The 3-day fund raiser concert ‘Rhythm of Desert’ organized in association with BookMyShow, will bring together more than 36 artists of national and international fame, the best in their class to give you the best experience. Legendary artists like Padamshree Anwar Khan ji, Coke Studio fame Sawan khan dabri, Indian Idol fame Sattar Khan Langa, Maati Ke Laal & SaReGaMaPa fame Roje Khan, SaReGaMaPa & Rising Star fame Hayat Khan, Sindhi Sarangi Player Meherdeen Langa along with Kalbeliya performers will present a unique rendition of folk music and art through the virtual concert.
The proceeds from this virtual concert will go towards feeding and providing appropriate COVID-19 healthcare to over 2000 folk artist families of Jaisalmer (Golden City of Rajasthan). SafeOKid will contribute an additional 10% on top of all funds collected through ticket sales.
