Prateek Kuhad Singing at the Shaheen Bagh Protest was Solidarity, Not a Free ConcertFebruary 6, 2020
Delhi’s temperatures in February still remain in single digits in early morning or late evening, but the morale of the protesters at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh still remain high, despite the cold.
As their protest entered its 52nd day of protest, their hearts were anything but a cold/mess as singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad took the stage and sang his popular song, ‘Dil Beparvah’ for them.
Kuhad was performing as a collective of artists who were showing solidarity at Shaheen Bagh in a ‘call for artists.’ The collective also involved other artists like Kusha Kapila, Lifafa, Ankur Tewari, Peter Cat Recording Co, Anushka Manchanda and other prominent artists.
“With the run-up to the Delhi elections and constant threats (and incidents) of violence, the next few days will be critical for the #ShaheenBaghProtest. Let’s thwart every force that tries to bring us down through art, theatre, and music, with this line up of some of our favourite artistes. February 2nd-7th at Shaheen Bagh. We hope to see you with us,” read a poster, showing the artist collective.
