Raag Rhythm
Mission
The goal of Raag Rhythm is two-fold: To bring together the children of North Dallas area
that share passion for rich Indian classical music, and to raise funds to help other non-profit
charities with a shared vision of making a difference with music.
What We Do
Raag Rhythm is an orchestra group comprising talented, middle and high school students,
with a passion for instrumental music and a deep interest to help make a difference in the
lives of less fortunate children. These young artists are bringing this unique program by
combining the western instrumental skills acquired through formal education with an age-old
traditional Indian classical music. This event is brought to you by the students and generous
donations from fine art lovers in the community. All raised funds are distributed to nonprofit organizations that foster musical education to children in need.
History
In February of 2011, a group of ambitious children with the help of their families formed
Raag Rhythm. Showcasing several prominent and challenging pieces, their breathtaking
performances mesmerized the audience. Now in their second year, Raag Rhythm has a
participation of 64 young musicians from various middle and high schools in North Dallas
area.
Chief Guest
For today's program, we are blessed to have an eminent vocalist Lalitha Sheshadri as the
chief guest. Familiar in DFW as Lalithamami, Mrs. Sheshadri is a disciple of Semmangudi
Srinivasa Iyer and Dr. Balamurali Krishna and one of the founding members of Indian Fine
Arts Academy (IFAA). Her contribution in spreading Indian Classical Music in the metroplex
and encouraging young and upcoming artists is phenomenal. She has been singing since
1951 and still performing in India and abroad.

As part of the Raag Rhythm's goals to give back to the society, we identify and
recognize two non-profit charities every year. These charities share a common
philosophy with Raag Rhythm in that music can make a difference. We are proud to
recognize the following organizations this year. All the generous donations received
for this event will benefit these wonderful organizations in continuing their inspiring
works.

Musical Angels

:

Musical Angels, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to uplift and improve the quality
of life of hospitalized children by actively engaging them in the process of making music with
their own hands and hearts. We believe that the process of the child making music with their
own hands and hearts improves their quality of life and assist in the healing process. We serve a
multi-cultural, diverse population of children who suffer conditions such as cancer, leukemia,
cystic fibrosis, anemia and brain strokes to mention only a few. Our patients come from a wide
range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.

$

A

The vision of Dr. Gustavo Tolosa, Founder and President of Musical Angels, Inc., is to create
“musical hospitals” all over the United States and around the world in which children who are
recovering from a serious health condition learn to make music with their own hands and hearts.
These children would become Musical Angels Ambassadors as they leave the hospital and touch
other people’s lives with their music.
We serve the following hospitals: Children’s Medical Center, Our Children’s House at Baylor,
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children and Medical City Children’s Hospital.
Please check our web site www.MusicalAngels.org for more information regarding volunteering
or to donate online.

Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya
A school with a difference...
The Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya (KSV) provides musical and academic education to one
hundred and sixty children. In addition, food, accommodation, health care and clothing are
also provided, and everything is free.
Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya empowers, supports and encourages children from socially marginalized
and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to realize their full potential and attain a better
life. This is done through an intensive and comprehensive educational program of academics and
music which is undertaken in a peaceful rural residential setting. It is the fundamental right of all
children to have access to education, adequate food, healthcare facilities and to participate in
their community’s cultural life. This will enable them to find meaningful and well-paid
employment which will have a positive impact upon them and their families.
KSV is traditional and modern in its educational approach at all times. Tradition is taught through
the ancient disciplines of Indian Classical Music. The modern educational programme is based on
the syllabus in Karnataka State. Computer studies are also important to prepare the students to
meet the demands of today’s rapidly evolving world.
From its humble origins, KSV has changed the lives of so many children. They have developed
aspirations to move on and pursue their talents. Support us in helping the children realize their
hopes, dreams and aspirations. For more information please check out our website:
