A healthy combination of passion for music and social welfare has given birth to CHANT INDIA , a singing Reality Show in aid of SMILE Charitable Trust for construction of toilets in girls schools across rural Karnataka.
CHANT INDIA is the brain child of the renowned percussionist Gopi and Carnatic vocalist Sangeetha Srikishen. Gopi & Sangeetha are well known performing musicians. Both of them have contributed a lot towards various social cause based events. This idea came up when they were casually discussing the importance of a toilet to a girl child.

The annual fun filled and delightful Krakerjack Festival was held at the Jayamahal Palace in Bangalore on Feb 6 th and 7 th this year. The entire event was a big success and all the participants had a great time taking part in the various workshops and activities.
Two Bands from the World Music Conservatory were invited to play on either day of the event and they completely set the stage on fire. The eclectic mix of styles and genres got the entire crowd tapping their feet and everyone made their way near the stage to enjoy the music.
The first band Consists of Sandhya on vocals, Krittika on keyboards, Brahmos on guitar and Sidhant on drums. They played a set that included popular pop hits such as Rolling in the Deep, 21 Guns and Demons.
The other band from WMC to perform here were 18 Across. Playing a set of blues and hard rock numbers, they took the audience back to the fun and carefree 60s with their engrossing playing style. The band consists of Surdeep on guitars and vocals, ……… on keyboard and …. on bass.
A drum circle, most simply put is a group of people gathered in a circle for the purpose of making music with percussion instruments, in the presence of an experienced facilitator. Drum circles are internationally seen as stress busters for teams, a corporate socializing exercise and are a fun experience for people of all age groups. WMC conducts Drum Circles at different places.
