A virtual collaboration of top musicians to raise awareness on environment | Hindi Movie News


Twenty-five musicians are coming together on one platform to take part in a live concert to raise awareness about the environment – the need to preserve and live in harmony with nature. Musicians, both from India and abroad, are collaborating with Grammy winner Ricky Kej for India’s biggest environment concert by Times Evoke on June 13.

Talking about the initiative, Kej says, “I make music only on environment and nature and it feels great to be a part of this concert, which is a really good initiative by Times Evoke.” He adds, “It is also great to collaborate with such amazing musicians from across India in singing and performing these songs. It’s a great experience because this particular message will reach out to a lot of people in a beautiful way. You can have a million speeches giving out information or have scientific data thrown at people, but if you do this through the language of music and visual media, then it goes straight to the hearts and minds of people. It’s very important to use the arts to spread the message of awareness and consciousness.”
