Agra, Feb 15: The Agra Music Festival is coming up again on February 25 with its host of world famous musicians and performances at the Hotel Ramada Plaza in the city.
The two-day long event is organised jointly by the Round Table India Foundation (RTIF) and Architect Association of Agra.
Festival curator, D. K. Singh said that the city famous for legends of world music like Tansen and Nahar Banim, lost its musical charm as the time passed. "With this music festival, our aim is to restore the long lost Agra musical heritage around the globe,” he said.
“The festival also aims at promoting the welfare of underprivileged kids of the city; funds raised at the festival will be used to build classrooms for them,” said Ashish Gupta, Chairman RTIF (North India).
This music fest is an annual event organised to promote the state as a music destination around the world. Over 2000 people are expected to attend the event at Agra, and witness the emergence of the city as the music capital of India.
Widely known Rajasthani folk musicians such as Kutle Khan, playback singer Aditi Sharma Singh, Bandish band and DJ Aqeel will be performing at the event, and Kaustav Songman will be hosting the first season.
