The Music Room is an unique project highlighting maestros from South Asia but as well producing five fundraising events bringing music lovers together to support Music Basti, a non-for-profit organization empowering hundreds of "street children" from India through the media of music. HarmoNYom will donate 10% of all revenues to Music Basti as part of the fundraisings!
