Together with the Tomorrowland Foundation and the NGO Ek Tara, Garrix brought a special moment to children at a school in Calcutta
Legends are not only made through an extraordinary musical legacy but also human. And that’s exactly what Martin Garrix did a few days ago when he played a small set for school children in India.
Together with Tomorrowland’s Music & Arts School Foundation and the NGO Ek Tara, Garrix gave a surprise performance at a school in Kolkata, where he played several of his hits, including “Animals”.
Tomorrowland Foundation has two music and art schools in Calcutta, where together with Ek Tara, they bring high-quality holistic education to children and women from low-income families with the goal of transforming the lives of these people. Learn more about the project.
A human legacy that transcends music
This is not the first time that the Dutch producer has been part of a charity event. At the young age of 20, he was appointed International Ambassador for SOS Children Village, an NGO that helps orphaned and vulnerable children around the world.
India has an important place in his heart, and he proved it a few years ago when he performed a charity concert at the Mahalaxmi racetrack where he gathered more than 40,000 fans. All the money was given to the NGO Magic Bus, which promotes the education of thousands of children in that country.
“He is one of the most inspiring examples to get young people all over the planet to fight and fight to achieve their dreams,” mentions the director of SOS Children’s Village regarding Garrix. Check out his recent performance for school children in India below.
