Music is a big part of India's culture & heritage. Folk Music of India has a lot of history & tradition, that goes back centuries. Some of these folk musicians are exceptional & very talented. Their music really touches your soul. These musicians come from very remote areas & their livelihood depends mostly on tourism. There are some months that are very difficult for them & their families.
Zariya Foundation is a non profit organisation by Salim - Sulaiman, that helps & creates opportunities for these folk musicians that are constantly struggling to make a livelihood, while keeping our culture & tradition alive.
We at Zariya Foundation are making efforts to look after the well being of the families of these folk musicians from Barmer & Jaisalmer in Rajasthan.
Some of these musicians have even toured with us & performed all over the world in countries like the US, Canada, UK, Russia & continue to be part of 'Salim Sulaiman Live'. Zariya Foundation has taken the responsibility of supporting these incredible musicians and their families, to keep their music, culture & tradition alive, for India & the rest of the world.
