Rock for Peace & Harmony

Rock n’ Roll has often been wrongly associated with drugs and alcohol, but this has been on the mend at least in Sikkim, where for the past few years, people working with rehabilitation and treatment have used music as a medium to spread the message of a drug and alcohol free society.
In a similar initiative, Mirakai Rehab of Aho in East Sikkim under Drishya Foundation and the Yargey Association of Tatangchen (YAT) are all set to woo rock n rollers by organizing a rock concert on the theme, “Peace and Harmony” at Guards Ground, Tatangchen on 02 October, Gandhi Jayanti. A strong focus of the show will be on spreading awareness against substance abuse.
On stage will be Still Waters, one of the premier bands of the state who will also be giving new artists a chance to perform on stage alongside them. And the programme that starts at 4pm sharp will not just have rock music to spread the message on the ills of substance abuse, there will also be other events lined up for the audience like a bodybuilding show by members of SSBBA, dance and cultural performances by students and a cat walk by teenagers from the locality.  
Entry to the event is free for all and the show has been supported by Café Live n Loud, Ladakhi Depo, Red FM, Nayuma Television, Sikkim Distilleries, Good News, Royal Plaza and the Cultural Affairs & Heritage Department.
