Playing For Change is partnering with Live from The Console, a monthly get-together of fresh local musical talent at an old Mumbai film recording studio that morphs into a pub for a night.   

Playing For Change Day is a global music event taking place tomorrow, September 17.

Musicians of all shades perform on stages, in cafés, city squares and street corners around the world, to raise money to bring music into the lives of young people.

Some 213 gigs have been organized and about US$34,000 collected, towards which Mumbai has so far contributed a grand total of $25.

But the good news is 253 people are attending the Mumbai Playing For Change gig, and that's mostly because of the venue.

The lineup includes Airport, Bombay BASSment, Bay Beat Collective and K.C. Loy.

September 17, 6 p.m. onwards at Recording Studio, Mehboob Studio, Bandra (W); Facebook group
