Speaking on her love for music and the event, Niloufer Rohira, Founder & Partner, StreaminLive says, “Not many things bring us the joy that music does. I would like to give back, in my own small way and show my appreciation for those who are instrumental in bringing us that music.” In the process of pursuing a passion for music, Niloufer began voice training. She met people from the live western music industry and realized that there was a gap between musicians and the way in which they were being promoted”.
She felt that a lot more needed to be done for musicians to be appreciated, their talent to be showcased correctly and for more people to be brought into this fold. She felt that more venues and platforms were needed in order to ensure that live western music grew and flourished in this country. So, StreaminLive began its journey with little steps and Niloufer strongly feels that it has made a difference in this short period of time.
This has been possible only because people in general, individuals, venue owners and corporate companies are coming forward to join hands with the brand to encourage and promote the best of live western music to this country.
Niloufer hopes to continue with this effort, using all the experience she has gained in the hotel industry and in the corporate world as a business woman, to further this cause and make it hugely successful.
