Article 14: Ladai Barabari Ki – Stand Up for Equal Rights | Mavlankar Hall, Constitution Club, Sep 15, 6.30 pm

Renowned and popular Dalit bands and artistes will be performing in Delhi on the eve of the march to Parliament House, organised by various Dalit organisations and workers’ associations under the aegis of Dalit Swabhiman Sangharsh.

Music conveys what slogans and speeches can’t. A new set of Dalit groups and artistes are now emerging, who unhesitatingly convey their experiences, grievances, anger as well and hope and expectations of all that they see around them.

Come and hear them at Article 14, which underscores the Right to Equality that exists in Law but needs reminding all the time. What these artistes sing, will stay with you, long after the evening is over.

You will be able to hear the following artistes:

Ginni Mahi is a 17-year old Punjabi singer, who has already cut two albums, Guran di Deewani and Gurparab hai Kanshi Wale da. She sings songs that talk of Dalit empowerment. With thousands of fans on Facebook and YouTube, Mahi has a single aim that she intends to achieve through her verses: promoting equality in society.

Shital Sathe is a well-known folk singer, poet and Dalit activist from Maharashtra. She is one of the lead singers of the famous troupe, Kabir Kala Manch. She has been prominently featured in Anand Patwardhan’s documentary film, Jai Bhim Comrade.

Sanjay Rajoura is a stand-up comic artiste who is known for his sharp political comments and views. He has performed globally and is recognised as one of the leading progressive voices in India’s stand-up comedy scene.

Sujat Ambedkar is a drummer and had his own band in Pune till he moved to Chennai where he is currently studying journalism.

Be it in Marathi, Punjabi, Hindi or English, familiarise yourself this new language — of resistance, power and a new India. Lend your support to these voices.

Venue: Mavlankar Hall, Constitution Club, Rafi Marg, New Delhi
Date: Thursday, 15 September, 2016
