Kasauli, April 15, 2017: After an exhilarating closing to the first day of the 6th edition of Genesis Foundation’s #KasauliRnB, the second day began with a crowd of over 550 music enthusiasts filled with anticipation of much more fun to come. The musical event witnessed people coming from across the country to enjoy the best known Indian bands in the cool breeze of Kasauli Hills. The three-day long music extravaganza is being held at Baikunth Resorts, Kasauli till April 16, 2017.

#KasauliRnB is now one of the most popular music festivals of the country, with its own cult following. The second day of the festival began with a session on Meditation With Music, led by Tritha Sinha. After the relaxing meditation, it was time to take the adrenaline levels up a few notches, and that was what the Delhi Drum Circle did.

As afternoon merged into evening, the stage came alive with a rocking performance by Kamakshi Khanna Collective. She began her performance with the title track of her latest Album, Cake Walk.
Following her high-octane performance was Neeraj Arya’s Kabir Collective, the lyrics of which are inspired by the verses of the famous poet, Kabir. As the sun came down to hide behind the hills, Jonita Gandhi performed some of the latest Bollywood numbers that left the crowd on their feet and asking for more. The final performer for the night was none other than iconic and evergreen Usha Uthup, the woman with a powerful voice, whose performance set the stage on fire.

Talking about the event, Jyoti Sagar, Founder Trustee of Genesis Foundation said, “What wonderful performances we had this year at KasauliRnB! Prema and I are delighted as music-lovers and immensely grateful to the artists for their time and effort for the Festival, and for the cause. It is heartening to the growing support for Genesis Foundation and the Festival. Here’s to many more years of the KasauliRnB!”

Commenting on the occasion Kamakshi Khanna from Kamakshi Khanna Collective said, “We are very excited for the Festival as this is the first time we are playing in the hills. The Festival has an amazing energy combined with the beauty of the hills. Art is a powerful way to get across any message and we are thankful to Genesis Foundation for giving us a chance to be a part of this great initiative. We would encourage people to be a part of it. Look forward to playing the next year.”
