Working among children for the past 15 years around different parts of the world made Arunangshu realize the need to introduce & expose them to the world of rhythm .This generation has inherent quality of internalizing rhythm and giving it an expression which is unheard of.

This project aims at celebrating the confluence of youth and rhythm. This is an endeavor to educate these young talented children to the rhythmic intricacies of different parts of the world.
