From creating fun musical experiences for vulnerable children in 2008, Music Basti has matured into an organisation focussed on creating a space for personal growth and nurturing key life-skills today.
Music Basti has formed a (musical) community that comprises its NGO partners, donor partners, teaching artists, volunteers, musicians,and countless supporters.
Music Basti has grown from a small group of volunteers in 2008 to a vibrant team of over 30 full and part time staff, who are assisted by a large number of volunteers. Beyond our core team, 20+ teaching artists join Music Basti every year in implementing the project, playing the most important role in the students’ learning and experience.
