Raga Rasa & Cry Press Release

RAGA RASA ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH CRY AMERICA
- a collaboration premised on Kartik Seshadri’s guiding philosophy that “Music is one of the most powerful mediums for social empowerment and change”

 

February 12, 2013 (San Diego, CA)– Raga Rasa, the Kartik Seshadri Center for Indian Classical Music, today announced its collaboration with CRY America on a campaign to raise awareness for children’s rights. The nonprofit organizations will work together on a series of concerts and outreach events beginning on February 12 with the launch of CRY’s “Stay In School- Girl Child Campaign.”

 

Stay In School – Girl Child Campaign

 

The “Stay In School – Girl Child Campaign” will be a springboard for Raga Rasa
and CRY America to collectively widen their reach to audiences who may not be
aware of these issues. Planning is underway for events ranging from a benefit
concert at Qualcomm headquarters to a city-wide CRY Walk later in the year.
CRY America believes that when a girl child gets the opportunity to go to school
and remain in school, she sets off a cycle of positive change. Educated girls grow
up to be empowered women, they make better care givers for their own children
and influence the communities they live in.

 

“The situation of the girl child in India needs urgent attention. We believe the
partnership with Raga Rasa will help create awareness about these issues and
raise valuable funds, which will bring lasting change to the lives of thousands of
underprivileged children in India,” said Monica Kharkar of CRY America.
For Kartik Seshadri, renowned sitarist and founder of Raga Rasa, this goal is
closely aligned with his personal belief in the role of music and education to
empower social change. “Using music as the medium, we can push boundaries,
encourage dialogues and begin to address some of these problems at a
grassroots level.”
