Aimed at generating financial support for critically ill children, a three-day Rhythm & Blues Festival would begin in Kasauli from April 18 onwards.
The festival is being organised by Genesis foundation with support of sponsors, bands and patron. Foundation’s spokesman said the event promises to be a perfect weekend in the hills of Himachal.
The foundation provides financial support to critically ill and under-privileged children, and is registered under Section 80-G of the Income Tax Act, 1961, which entitles the donor to a 50% rebate on amount donated.
The spokesman said: “Valentine Shipley, Kaya, Ministry of Blues, Susmit Sen Chronicles and Indus Creed bands will perform on the first day, while Whirling Kalapas, Adi and Suhail, Caralisa Monteiro, Lagori and Soulmate on the second day. On the third day, brunch at the Kasauli club with Atul Ahuja’s jazz and love ballads and the performance by Gurkha regiment band will be organised.”
