SAHANA is made up of a group of friends and music lovers who enjoy practicing and playing music together. In an attempt to make more than just music to entertain ourselves, we organized our first fund-raiser for a charity. Initially we invited our circle of family, friends and acquaintances to join us for a potluck dinner followed by a live music show. Over the years, we have grown to include more musicians, singers and instruments. Along with us, our audience has grown to support our efforts. To date, we have generated over $140,000 towards various charities since 2008.
