An appeal to donate to Tambura Welfare Fund

Rasikas.org, a popular website on Carnatic music, counts being rasikas as well as musicians as its members. 

Some of these have instituted a Tambura Welfare Fund to help the needy among tambura artists and technicians, contributing their own funds.  

Chitravina Ravikiran and his family have extended their support to this worthy initiative, and KN Sashikiran has included it as part of the Carnatica Archival Center, a Trust launched in July 1999 "to preserve, promote and propagating Carnatic music globally."

Towards this end, leading vocalist Aruna Sairam has consented to perform for a fund raising benefit concert, as a part of Bharat Sangeet Utsav-2014 of Carnatica . Aruna Sairam’s concert will take place on Sunday, 2 November, 2014,  at Narada Gana Sabha Hall.  

The proceeds of the concert and contributions by members of rasikas.org will go to meet the critical needs of tambura artists and technicians at Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Tiruvananthapuram.  

CAC-TAWF (Carnaticxa Archival Centre-Tambura Artists Welfare Fund) appeals to rasikas, patrons, sponsors, corporate, foundations and institutions with an interest in Carnatic music to contribute 
liberally to the fund.

CAC is a Trust and donations are exempted from tax.
