Genesis Foundation is organising the event. It encourages upcoming artistes from across the country to perform in support of critically ill under-privileged children.

Prema Sagar, founding trustee, Genesis Foundation, said: “Every year, the festival is growing and the challenge is to keep making it bigger and better, explore new avenues and venues to help more children. Last year, we started with the first Goa Rhythm & Blues Festival. I strongly believe that music is a positive and participatory force in the creation of change.”

As opposed to bad weather last year, this time Sagar is well prepared and is looking forward to bikers riding uphill for the event. Her next plan of action is to go international. “It’s Silicon valley we are aiming at,” she said.
