Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Music Festival

Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Music Festival

Genesis Foundation conceptualised the Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Music Festival in 2012 with the belief that music is “a positive and participatory force in creating change in society”. Held annually amidst the lush landscape of Kasauli, Himachal, the festival raises funds for the treatment of critically ill and underprivileged children suffering from heart disorders. Singers such as Usha Uthup, Leslie Lewis, Rabbi Shergill, Ankur Tewari and Jonita Gandhi and bands like Parikrama, Thaikkudam Bridge, The Local Train, Parvaaz and When Chai Met Toast are among the acts who have supported the cause and performed at the Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Music Festival over its eight editions. The festival was last held in 2019.
