We all know how music refreshes our mind. It has become an integral part of our daily life. But if we speak specifically about a live concert, it is on a different level altogether. It is also a way for organizations to raise awareness about social causes that need attention. This month, 100 Pipers #PlayForACause initiative will see the British rock band The Dire Straits Experience perform live for the first time in India. Through this, the band will support the cause to provide sustainable drinking water to villagers in Rajasthan.
Dire Straits was a British rock band formed by vocalist and guitarist Mark Knopfler and his brother David Knopfler, John Illsley and Pick Withers. Combining influences from country, blues, R & B and more the group achieved fame in the music scene of the late 70’s with a unique rock sound that took them to stardom in the mid-80’s.
