MUMBAI: The MarathwadaParivaar and Mantra Foundation have organized a unique musical evening featuring "Sitar Funk" in aid of Marathwada Drought Relief Fund.

The Marathwada region of Maharashtra State, in particular the districts of Beed, Jalna and Osmanabad have been facing severe drought. The immense water scarcity has severely affected the lives of the villagers; the severity of the drought is so intense that the villages get water only 20 minutes a week. Adding to the woes, these villages have inadequate water storage facilities. Notwithstanding the best possible efforts from State Government of Maharashtra, there is still an acute shortage of water and therefore various private NGO's like Marathwada Pariwar have taken up the responsibility to mitigate the hardship caused by the drought.

Marathwada Pariwar, has tied up with Mantra Foundation, to help alleviate the problems of the drought affected areas by supplying the plastic water tanks of capacities ranging from 2000 to 5000 liters and make arrangements for huge cement tubs to protect the cattle life.

To help in this endeavour, Pancham Nishad Creatives has organized a musical evening featuring "Sitar Funk" a group of extremely talented musicians who aim to raise maximum funds for this cause by graciously accepting to be a part of this fund raiser event. The event is scheduled to be held on the 25th of April, 2013 at the Shanmukhananda Auditorium, Sion from 7:30 p.m. onwards without an interval.

Sitar Funk is a young group of extremely talented musicians namely Niladri Kumar (Sitar/ Zitar), Gino Banks (Drums), Satyajeet Talwalkar (Tabla), Sheldon D'Silva (Bass Guitar) and Agnelo Fernandes (Keyboard). Niladri Kumar leads the group with energetic melodies.

The group effectively blends Indian Classical Music with Global Music to create musical sound seldom heard. The son and disciple of Sitar Maestro Pandit Kartick Kumar, Niladri has undoubtedly made his mark, as one of the finest young Sitar Virtuoso. Niladri brought about the initiative of extending the boundaries of his musical realm. He combined his understanding of diverse Indian musical gharana styles with world music styles, through imaginative experiments.

Mantra Foundation is a charitable organization established in the year 2000 to work in the area of education, medical relief and constructive endeavour in mitigating the hardships resulted from calamities like drought, earthquake etc. Marathwada Pariwar is a recently set up group of Mumbai based professionals and individuals who either have the origins from or have intense love & affection for the Marathwada Region.
