- Zaied Ahmed

Just read about this! brilliant work you doing out there :)

hope to catch the next one at churchgate

- Anuja Sanghavi

I reached Vashi station tired and worn out from the days work, to see a crowd formed around a man, went to investigate, and I saw a man performing a song which sounded like Sufi music to me. His voice echoed through the granite corridors of the station and the merry strums of his guitar filled the air with melancholy. I stood there hearing his song about finding God in ones own belief, reminded me of Kabir ke Dohe which i had read when i was a kid.
- Satish Kumar

Liked the new concept of taking the music to mass n encouraging the artist. I am out of Bombay but would love to see the next event. All the best
- Vimal Rachna

The purpose of art is not only to amuse the people but to enlighten the hearts of the people, to seek good and to transfrom the ordinary life for someting extraordinary and to help people to live in a better society.
