A short film on Musicians with Autism

Unlabel, with Mahesh Raghvan

The first project of the Mitra academy, #Unlabel was conceived in collaboration with Mahesh Raghvan. Our young talents getting the opportunity to get creative and be a part of the process of making the music was an amazing experience. The music video was shot at the Mitra Habba, a celebration of Friendships and Inclusion. We invite you to enjoy the music with us. 

These youngsters have had music touch their lives in different ways. As they go deeper into their own worlds with their music and relate better to the outer world with it, watch their inner emotions being expressed. Each family has gone through their own journey of exploring music and the arts with their child, and they share their journey with all its ups and downs. Watch it and be inspired! To schedule a viewing msg +919740093408.
