It was a music concert for a cause. Thursday night at Blue Frog was a bright, musical one and the best part of it all was that the proceeds collected would help in something much better than just entertaining a few.
Believing in the saying that music makes life better, MTV brought various artistes under one roof to help the victims of Uttarakhand floods in an initiative titled - MTV India and YOU for Uttarakhand. We caught a few artists back stage to know about their association with the cause and more.
When Clinton Cerejo got a call from MTV to perform for the cause he was instantly ready to do it. ‘I think musicians can do things for the society in their own way. We are here to do just that dedicating our performances and raising funds for the victims,’ said Cerejo speaking to Millennium Post.
Singer Sonu Kakkar was as keen as Cerejo to perform, ‘I instantly said yes for it as it will be my bit as an artiste for people who suffered the calamity,’ she said.
A few local musicians and bands were also a part of the night doing their bit for charity.
Discussing various initiatives that can help the victims and contribution of artists for such cause, the conversation took a turn towards Clinton and Sonu’s up-coming work.
Listeners can watch out for a band performance that they both are joining hands for. 'I am producing a few good tracks for the band, we are still working on a band performance,' added Clinton.
Talking about his upcoming work which includes Vishal Bharadwaj’s Dedh Ishiqiya he said, ‘We are working on couple of songs its a blend of traditional and modern music.’ Fans of Kakkar can wait for a her up-coming single soon.
When one talks about music, various genres and work, often a question comes to mind, what kind of music do the composers listen to? The simple answer came from Clinton, ‘We listen to all kind of music right from jingles to other artists, as an artist you should know about everything that is out there.’
The crowd also enjoyed performances by Half Step Down, Bianca Gomes, Dhruv Visvanath, Adi and Suhail. The funds raised will be used by Save The Children NGO.
