From the likes of Papon to Sufi ki Sultana Harshdeep Kaur, this has been one blockbuster night, all #ForAssam. The beauty of music lies in the fact that it connects people and can communicate the ‘unsaid’ and as a brand that believes in the ‘spirit’ of music, we are proud to have been hosted this event.

Together we shall rebuild the lives of our brothers and sisters affected by the calamity. I also take this opportunity to extend my gratitude to all the fellow musicians who instantly agreed to partake in this relief project despite their prior commitments."
