Indian Ocean, the legendary jazz-fusion band from India will be performing September 11, 2010 at 8:00 PM at MacMillan Theatre, University of Toronto (Canada). Indian Ocean’s music is evocative, eclectic and soulful, and has a cult following amongst college students and world music audiences. They were also on the Rolling Stone magazine cover this month in India, and composed the music for Aamir Khan’s recent film Peepli.
In the past 9 years a crisis has been devastating India’s farm lands – 200,000 farmers have committed suicide after their crops failed due to drought, overuse of pesticides and predatory lenders. The proceeds of this concert, produced by Yeh Hai Life and the Toronto Environment Alliance will benefit AID India, a huge volunteer based group that works on the ground with these farmers’ families.
