Aikya: Transforming the Language of Music

The evening of February, 21st 2016, was magical. Solidarity Foundation, along with the help of several contributors, organised an event that for the first time was a musical conversation between Jogappas (a traditional transgender community from North Karnataka) and T.M Krishna, a carnatic music maestro. The performance received an impressive response from the audience as well as the media, for it was an attempt to further the advocacy around the cause of the Jogappa communities in South India and to bring them to the forefront. We also plan to continue to conduct such events in venues across the country with the help and support of well wishers and the members of the Jogappa community.
