ABOUT THE ALBUM
* * *
Ship of Dreams / सपनो का जहाज़ is the live recording of Music Basti's third annual children's concert, featuring 300 at-risk children performing 13 original songs they have written and composed about their dreams! The public concert was hosted with a live band in Delhi on 17th April 2016 at The Garden of Five Senses.
The children Music Basti works with inhabit insecure and also at times dismal environments, which often lead to destructive behaviour. Adversity affects their ability to engage with the world, make healthy life choices and be successful. Life skills then become a critical ingredient in their repertory to help navigate challenges and flourish. Music Basti partners with existing community organizations to run a music program for children and adolescents. The program is fun and engaging, designed to nurture creativity, self-confidence and teamwork.
Musicians are recruited and trained to be teaching-artists who then run weekly classes so that children learn to write, compose and perform original songs. Students gain the multiple benefits of learning music skills while collaborating to produce their own composition, which they perform at the ReSound concert at the end of each year.

ABOUT MUSIC BASTI'S RESOUND PROGRAM

Set up in 2008, Music Basti connects at-risk children and musicians with the aim to nurture confidence and a sense of community through a creative and joyful music learning experience. The yearlong ReSound program of Music Basti is designed to encourage children to develop the skills they need to achieve their best.
In 2013, we launched the ReSound program, to create equal music learning opportunities and quality concert spaces for children who otherwise have no access to them. ReSound has worked directly with over 700 students in Delhi/NCR.
