'Mitti Ke Sitare', India's first music reality show for underprivileged kids appreciates Indian Classical arts: Jubin Nautiyal

MUMBAI: Mpower, a pioneer in Indian mental healthcare partnered with Divyaj Foundation to launch the Mitti Ke Sitare initiative that aims to discover hidden talent from the slum areas of Mumbai and honing their musical skills to showcase their talent to the audience. Mpower founder and chairperson Neerja Birla and renowned social activist and singer Amruta Fadnavis, have come together to promote the talent of underprivileged children.

The auditions for India’s first music reality show for underprivileged kids are going on in full swing. 56 children have been selected out of over 500 children who auditioned for this event. These children performed on 26 February 2019 in the presence of both Birla and Fadnavis. But, guess who made a surprise visit there?  It was our very own Jubin Nautiyal who gave some motivation to those kids. He told the kids, “The round of applause, you will get from the audience, will be your biggest motivation.”

Nautiyal also revealed what he likes the most about Mitti Ke Sittare. He said, “In this music reality show, there is a usage of classical arts, while mostly on platforms, there is a western music setup (used as a backdrop for music). This show does appreciate Indian Classical arts.”

While motivating these kids, Jubin Nautiyal also shared on what he felt during his initial music learning stages, “I had this in mind that I will not leave music. (sangeet hamesha saath rahega, isme sukoon hai, meditation hai, competitionna karne mein ek motivation hai).”

“I keep on telling in my interviews that if today I wouldn’t be a singer then I would still have my passion for singing. I would still sit with a guitar in a club.” So, kids, you are at a very nice platform. I would like to thank Divyaj Foundation and Mpower for coming up with this is initiative a big congratulations   to all those people who have contributed to Mitti Ke Sitare,” Jubin concluded.
