Jazz Fusion Ecstasy for charity this weekend

We’ve previously mentioned Pandit Habib Khan, the local master of Indian classical music and Indo-Jazz fusion. This weekend, Khan will give a concert of jazz fusion music under the title “Ecstasy”, to benefit Asha for Education Silicon Valley. Pandit Habib Khan’s fusion music blends classical Indian sitar with western instruments and jazz rhythms.

Asha for Education Silicon Valley is one of about 60 chapters of a charity supporting education for poor children in India. Asha for Education Silicon Valley supports more than 40 projects in India. For example, they support Rescue Junction, which helps homeless children living in the railway station at Gaya, Bihar, to get a basic education, vocational training, counseling, and legal assistance. Other projects provide education to mentally handicapped children in four cities around India. Asha for Education has a four-star rating for financial efficiency from Charity Navigator, and its all-volunteer staff is working to upgrade its accountability processes to reach a four-star overall rating.

This event promises a chance to hear some beautiful music and support a great cause.
