Roohani Sisters Live, A Thalassemia awareness initiative by SUBURB
To spread awareness about the rising cases of Thalassemia, SUBURB in association with Honda Motor Cycle & Scooter India Pvt Ltd, organised a soulful Sufi evening with the live performance of Roohani Sisters at the DLF City Club 4.
It was ROOHANI Sisters Live, a Thalassemia awareness initiative curated by SUBURB, a power packed show with high profile audience and great set of musicians. The evening unfolded with a presentation on Thalassemia; its causes, and its impact, followed by opening of the show by Mr Harbhajan Singh, Director, General & Corporate Affairs, Honda Motor Cycle & Scooter India Pvt Ltd and Ms Vineeta Jerath, Founder & Editor SUBURB.
The evening of entertainment associated with the cause of Thalassemia and supported by Thalassemics India (an organization working for the cause of Thallesimia in India) was greatly appreciated by the audience. The audience was music struck with the compositions and the enchanting singing of the two Roohani Sisters. The audience was seen watching the Thalassemia awareness presentation with curiosity and interest. Present on the occasion were some well- known names and faces who were enthralled with the flawless evening.
Roohani Sisters – Dr Jagriti Luthra Prasanna and Dr Neeta Pandey Negi who make a remarkable duo sang Sufiyana Qalams, Qawwali, Kaafi and Ghazals in traditional style along with their own improvisations and variations, merging it with the Jugalbandi style of Indian classical music. The entrancing music of the evening found inspiration from the Qalams of Baba Bulleshah, Sultan Bahu, Hazrat Rumi, Hazrat Ameer Khusrau, Baba Fareed and other Sufi poets.
