Musical evening to raise funds for society welfare

Fossils is a well-known name in the music arena in Bengal. On September 1, Fossils is going to present a musical soiree to raise funds in order to set up a school for the children coming from the economically challenged background.

This is for the first time when a musical performance will be held to raise fund for a school for underprivileged.

The programme titled 'Aaro Ekbar' Fossils will feature Rupam Islam as the lead vocalist, Deep Ghosh on rhythm guitar, Allan Ao will be on the lead guitar, Tanmoy Das on drums and Prasenjit "Pom" Chakrabutty (Bass).

The money raised from the show will be spent to set up a school building of Girijyoti Vidyalaya in Siliguri. Rupam said this is a unique venture and response of the people is huge.

The show will be presented by Carpe Diem. Somnath Dasgupta and Samarpita Chanda who founded Carpe Diem said the effort will be to organise events which are unique with a social commitment. "We always believed that performing arts is just not for sheer entertainment but also plays a pivotal role in community development," said Dasgupta.

"The venture is likely to inspire others to come forward and organise shows for a social cause," he further added.

"Community development through performing arts is a unique venture and will help the children to have a school. In absence of any school buildings, classes are being held in the open," said lead vocalist Islam.
