Vieux Farka Toure
Upscale menswear and accessories brand, Blackberrys, is bringing music lovers in India an unprecedented opportunity. This year its annual flagship event Sharp Nights is organizing a five-city World Music tour. The Bangalore edition of Masters Of World Music will feature celebrated Malian folk Fusion and Blues guitarist and singer Vieux Farka Toure, at High Ultra Lounge in Bengaluru on December 6th, 2014. With this first-of-its-kind world music tour, Blackberrys is also providing an opportunity to home grown talents. In Bengaluru, Shoonya will perform on the very same stage.

Aptly titled ‘Blackberrys Sharp Nights – Masters Of World Music’, the India tour will showcase two of the world's leading world music performers, promote local musical talent and institute a scholarship fund to help conserve traditional Indian music.

Commenting on this unique amalgamation of fashion and music and its efforts to accustom the Indian audiences with the genre of world music, Mr. Nikhil Mohan, Managing Director, Blackberrys said, “Sharp Nights has always been a much awaited event. This year we are delighted to introduce world music under the Masters of World Music series. Much like how fashion is intertwined with world cultures, world music too emanates from the remarkable diversity prevalent in the universe. It is here that audiences appreciate how music participates and connects to the world in ways unfamiliar to us.”

Furthermore the concert will begin with a fashion auction which will showcase the Blackberrys AW '14 look – the proceeds of which will be used to nurture Indian traditional music schools, by providing scholarships for deserving students and funds for material support.
