Dinesh Shahra Foundation (DSF) has taken a major stride in its efforts to promote soulful Indian music among the masses. The Foundation has instituted a first-of-its-kind ‘Dinesh Shahra Lifetime Award’ for Excellence in Music. The initiative is supported by the Indian Arts & Cultural Society. The Announcement of this novel recognition was made by Mr Dinesh Shahra, Trustee –DSF during a cultural event titled “Mausiqui’ in Mumbai recently.
Why did DSF take this initiative?
- DSF, as a part of its mission to create a value-based social structure, has taken up the cause of supporting senior artists in cooperation with the Indian Arts & Cultural Society.
- Apart from a trophy or memento, the recognition will also include a significant cash component.
- India’s music production relies heavily on thousands of instruments players, technicians, performers etc., who, through their creativity, produce some of the most popular tracks in the world. However, these professionals do not have a safety net to secure their old age and health once they are past their prime.
