Dharavi Music Project

“To Dharavi with love” is written and produced by upcoming Swiss artist, Chelan (@staircaserecordings) as an outcry from India’s Dharavi slum youth. The song’s verses are phrases, words of hope and calls for action written by children living in Dharavi throughout the COVID-19 crisis. The video is filmed and edited by another Swiss artist, a talented videographer, Jonas Schwegler (@jonas.schwegler). Through music we hope to garner more support and donations for Dharavi Diaries that aims to feed 50 000 workers in Dharavi. For every US$ 15 that you give, a family of 6 will be able to feed themselves for 2 weeks.
