    The event was facilitated by Asha Society, which primarily works for the betterment of slum dwellers in the city. The children, aged between 6-14 years, who participated in the workshop are part of R.K. Puram slum’s children’s association. The workshop began with an introduction to instruments and rhythm, and went on to teach the difference between various instruments through a song.
