Experience Aditi @ Umbria - Fundraiser for Akshaya Patra
Boston's first major fusion event of progressive South Asian/ Middle Eastern electronic dance beats and live musicians. DJ’s spinning house, bhangra, Bollywood and ethnic tracks interplay with skilled live musicians to create an exciting, creative and spontaneous soundscape.Inspired by the likes of Tabla Beat Science, Karsh Kale, Talvin Singh, and Basement Bhangra. This benefit event will help to directly empower school-aged children in Indian government schools. Aditi will channel 100 percent of net proceeds to Akshaya Patra, a charitable organization providing free, daily, nutritious lunches to government school students. Because this lunch is often the only complete meal these children receive during the day, it creates an incentive for the children to attend school and stay in school, and provides nourishment that increases their awareness and learning ability. The program has produced dramatic improvements in enrollment, attendance, and test scores. Every $28 feeds one child every day for an entire school year – more than 200 meals. Akshaya Patra has a goal of serving 1 million children by the year 2010. http://www.foodforeducation.org http://www.myspace.com/aditiboston Tickets: http://boston.sulekha.com/events/Music/2007/11/aditi.htm
