Kashan Admani brings together 31 artists to create Taare as part of Dreamstaion Productions ‘Music For A Cause’.
Pakistan today faces an education crisis of unprecedented proportions. According to Alif Ailaan, there are 22.6 million boys and girls out of school – that’s nearly half (44%) of all children in the country. The vast majority receive an education of poor quality. About 43% of government school are in dangerous or dilapidated condition and lack basic facilities such as furniture, bathroom, boundary walls, electricity and clean water.
While highlighting the importance of education in Pakistan, Admani says, “I created the song with the intention to instil a feeling amongst the privileged community to think of under privileged children as their own. These children can’t afford quality education and they are the country’s future. If we do not educate them today, you can only imagine the kind of society we will leave behind for our future generations.”
“Education for all is the need of the hour. There are almost 23 million children out of schools in Pakistan. They can’t afford education and TCF is one organisation committed to providing education to these children. I feel we need to create songs and use our art about issues that our society faces. That’s the reason why I chose to support TCF and started this initiative Music for a Cause under my company Dreamstation Productions.”
Composed arranged and produced by Kashan Admani, Taare is recorded, mixed and mastered at Dreamstation Productions. Featuring 31 artists including Asad Rasheed (Mizmaar), Alycia Dias, Abbas Ali Khan, Ahsan Bari (Sounds of Kolachi), Natasha Baig, Rafay Israar, Quaid Ahmed (Sounds of Kolachi ), Fahad Ahmed, Zhalay Sarhadi, Nazia Zuberi, Sherry (Chaand Tara Ochestra), Bilal.

When asked about the experience of bringing 31 artists together, Admani adds, “Since this was a pro bono venture we asked all the artist we were in touch with and who were available in Karachi to participate and almost everyone agreed to own the cause and contributed. I wanted this project to have as many contributors as possible so that we could create the needed impact.”
Taare was officially released today 16th April at 5pm on Dreamstation Production’s Youtube Channel.
