“The US Embassy in New Delhi has awarded a grant to the Wacken Foundation to propose a music-related project. Since I worked for the Wacken Music Festival, I have been part of the project,” says Salman. Metrolife.
“We called the project ‘Let Women Do The Talking’ because the music industry is male-dominated,” he says.
The program will conclude with a concert by Paradise Kitty, an all-female Guns N’ Roses LA tribute band at the Hard Rock Cafe on St Marks Road.
The project took off in Delhi on June 25 and the second schedule took place in Mumbai on June 28. The Bengaluru stage has so far registered 170 entries.
