The ‘Strains of Violin in India’ project was designed and implemented by the musician and trainer Sara Michieletto to develop the musical education and emotional awareness of disadvantaged children in India, under the patronage of the Teatro La Fenice Foundation of Venice.
Over a full year, the violinist collaborated with 200 children attending Speed Trust activities, playing with them, singing, acting and performing two musical shows created by them (‘Raja, the little man of the rain’ and ‘The story of Bubu’).
To crown the completion of the activities, a Cd was recorded, containing the songs and dances learnt and invented during the year together.
For the vocals, 12 selected children (Manigandan B., Mohan H.,Yuvoraj B., Jasmine S., Monisha S., Sandhya S., Nagalakshmi R., Sangeetha K.,Vijayalakshmi S.,Valarmathi P., Niwetha I., Parameshwari E.,Tamilselvi), their teacher Nirmala, and the coordinator Stephen were brought together and recorded in the small studio, after the musical bases had been recorded by Sara Michieletto on the violin and Renaud David on the guitar.
