Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Festival
WHAT? Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Festival
WHEN? April 14-16, 2017
WHERE? Village Chabbal, Baikunth Resorts, Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh

In an era when EDM has almost taken over other genres, not every concert or show gets to reach the hearts of people. EDM is something you get to hear everywhere you go, but you won’t witness a band performing in the hills every weekend. It might sound a bit dreamy, but the music concerts being set up in the hills have something special about them. The calm and serenity they offer is incomparable. Under the sky full of stars, flowing in the rhythmic breeze of the hills, transporting you into a totally different tranquil world. Well, if that’s what you dream of, then it’s not the dream anymore. Yes, the Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Festival is here in its sixth edition and has everything you could ever ask for. It’s a festival packed with fun, amazing artists and music that is at any time better than regular EDM.

The reasons are listed below -

* A festival with a holistic approach
Live shows let the artists engage with the audience in a better and memorable way. They do away with the limits that traditional performances have and give the audience closer access to the artists. Unlike the regular loud parties, this one is different from the steady routine. Power-packed performances, soothing touch of the mystic mountains and the joy of contributing to a cause all combine to put you in an elevated state of mind.

* Festival for a weekend

Bored of the regular clubbing scenes and need a break from the clubs you’ve been going to every weekend? Well, then get set to spend the Easter weekend in the hills. The fusion of music and mountains in itself spells tranquility. It rejuvenates your mind, body and soul. While you embark on a journey to this music festival, the hills all around will be there to keep the excitement going.

* Festival for the little hearts

You might be seeing different music festivals happening every other day at some place or the other. But a music festival with a cause is something that totally demands a visit. What better way to enjoy a music festival than to know that while you do that, you are also supporting a great cause? The funds raised for the festival will be used for the treatment of critically ill under-privileged children suffering from heart disorders. So as music gladdens your heart, you are saving other little hearts!

KasauliRnB is an annual flagship event of Genesis Foundation. The three-day event promises a range of power-packed performances from bands like Jonita Gandhi Band, Neeraj Arya Kabir Café, Nasya, Eka, Kamakshi Khanna Collective and the original Grand Dame of Indian rock and roll, Usha Uthup. This year there are also fun-packed activities such as a Drum Circle and Meditation with Music. The Festival draws people from across the country to Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh to raise funds for under-privileged kids suffering from heart disorders. After facilitating the medical treatment for more than 1200 plus critically ill, underprivileged children, Genesis Foundation (GF) announced its core focus to be Heart Disorders as of Feb 1, 2017. Not only is it one of the most common ailments in kids, but it is also an area that desperately needs attention and is sorely missing awareness, resources, and support.
