Fundraising for the non-profit Organization, Vellai Thamarai. Vellai Thamarai is an Organization created in 2006 by Ajit and Selvi Sarkar, from Puducherry in India, to help underprivileged children of the region. The mission of The Vellai Thamarai Organization is to give children free access to education, to offer work to villagers in the Chinnakattupalayam region and to promote Indian culture.
Vellai Thamarai is glad to present Grammy nominated Jai Uttal (2002 Mondo Rama) who is a pioneer in the world music community with his eclectic "East-meets-West" sound. Uttal's album Queen of Hearts (Nutone Records) is a unique mixture of reggae, ska, and samba rhythms, used as a backdrop for call and response, dance-oriented Kirtan.
Jai has been leading Kirtans worldwide for over thirty years. "These ancient chants," writes Jai "contain a transformative power and healing energy. By singing these prayers we join a stream of consciousness and devotion that has been flowing for centuries."
Please join us for this very special event.
