Bangalore, Oct 13: Over 30 musicians, legends in their own field, will perform for a human cause in the city on October 27.

The renowned artists of Carnatic and Hindustani music would perform 'Vision of India - A Tribute to the Nation,' with the concept of 'Safe India: Progressive India' organised by Comprehensive Trauma Consortium (CTC) to carry the message that people do not become victims of trauma.

Talking to newsmen here today, Renowned Neurosurgeon N K Venkataramana of CTC said the event was conceived, written and composed by Violin Maestro L Subramaniam.

It would feature renowned artistes like Gangubai Hangal, Balamurali Krishna, Purna Das Baul, Pankaj Udhas, Kavita Krishnamurti Subramaniam, Suresh Wadkar, Wadali Brothers, Sikander Langa and Bindu Seetaa Subramaniam.

''This is a concept incorporating different styles of music from different parts of the country. This is for the first time the different traditional styles, including the very colourful folk traditions, are being brought together on the same platform along with classical music, Bollywood music and fusion.

''It is arranged with modern and traditional instruments and also includes traditional percussion,'' he added.

To a question, Dr Venkataramana said though the event was aimed at fund raising, it was being held to create awareness about the importance of pre-hospital care, to create effective recall about the emergency helpline 1062 besides raisings funds to sustain life saving services of the CTC.

Since initiating its services in March 2000, CTC Sanjeevini had saved over 45,000 lives absolutely free-of-charge and reduced the pre-hospital death rate to less than three from 32 per cent in March 2000 in the city.

Dr Venkataramana said CTC, at present, had 45 ambulances stationed at various points on national and state highways.

It had signed MoUs with more than 45 hospitals to rush the accident victims.
