Rescuing and rehabilitating current child sex worker and at risk children from brothels
Song of the Soul – Sacramento – Fundraiser for Project Udaan. Sunday, Oct 29 2017, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM PST Russell Ranch Elementary 375 Dry Creek Rd, Folsom Internationally acclaimed artiste Vikram Hazra is one of the foremost names in Indian music, with 15 albums and packed concerts in 49 countries till date. He is credited as being the first to introduce the electric guitar and a jazz-rock sensibility into this genre, presenting folk music, traditional chants and ancient philosophy in an exciting World Music format. Vikram Hazra doesn’t just play music — he opens up a doorway for his audiences to touch their own soul. His concerts evoke strong reactions from diverse audiences across the globe — some cry, some dance in ecstasy, some sing out loud with eyes closed, while some experience deep states of meditative bliss. A wave of positive energy floods the performance space and uplifts all those present. The Song of the Soul is a unique and seamless blend of ancient Sanskrit chants and a jazz-rock sensibility. Vikram uses right balance of social, cultural and historical context to make music come alive. Proceeds from the concert will benefit Project Udaan, an initiative that gives girls born and raised in the red light district of Kolkata a safe haven, away from the dangers of human trafficking. Project Udaan rescues and rehabilitates current child sex workers and at-risk children from the brothels of Sonagachi, Kolkata, in India. We are in the midst of a capital campaign to raise $500,000 to build a residential school for the girls. We are halfway through the goal, and need more support to raise the remainder.
