Music has the power to uplift the soul and bring people closer together. It is with this thought in mind that Seagram’s 100 Pipers continues its ‘Play For A Cause’ endeavor year after year to bring about real change in society. It brings together renowned artists in the field of music each year to perform for its causes, and this year, it has truly thrilled fans and rock music enthusiasts with the Dire Straits Experience!

Word on the street is they will belt out some of their greatest hits including Money for Nothing, Walk of Life, Brothers in Arms, Sultans of Swing, Romeo and Juliet, Tunnel of Love and more. Catch the live performance of the band in Gurgaon and Bengaluru on 17th & 19th March respectively.
Commenting on their maiden tour to India, Chris White said, “India has always been on our list and we are very excited to play in India. Our 2 city tour in India, In Gurgaon and Bangalore, is to support the 100 Pipers “Play for a cause” Initiative to provide water to villages in Rajasthan. The power of Music is incredible and it brings together people across nations and cultures. We are happy to become a part of this great event which is bringing music and artists together to make a difference to society.”
The execution of this project will be done by Advit Foundation, an NGO that works in the areas of environmental resource conservation and livelihood enhancement. Beneficiaries of the project will directly be impacted through the water conservation structures that the NGO will build in the target area comprising 6-7 villages in Rajasthan. These structures will ensure better quality of water for drinking, sanitation, irrigation, and livestock-rearing.
