We are the Anirudh Varma Collective, a contemporary Indian Classical Ensemble from New Delhi. The collective comprises over 150 musicians and artists from across India, America, and Canada. The Collective has released 2 full-length albums, 'Perspectives' (2018) and Homecoming (2022), and we have staged more than 500 performances. We have performed at festivals in both India and abroad such as The Jaipur Literature Festival, Mahindra Kabira Festival, Nita Ambani Cultural Centre, Mumbai (NMACC), Virasat Festival as well as the Festival of India in Kuwait and Maldives to name a few.

THE USA TOUR 2023
Since our conception in 2018, our mission has been to spread the magic of Indian Classical and Folk Music to audiences across the globe. We invite you to be part of an extraordinary musical journey as The Collective now prepares to embark on our first USA Tour in September-October 2023. To ensure the success of this tour, we are reaching out for your generous support. We will be performing across multiple cities across the USA, including Houston, Boulder, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Some of the notable venues on the tour include the Indo-American Association in Houston, Herb Alpert School of Music at UCLA, and Brooklyn Raga Massive in New York.
This tour is being funded and curated independently by the Collective, and we need your help and support to execute it successfully. By contributing to our crowdfunding campaign, you can play a vital role in bringing this musical dream to life. Since this tour is not funded by any sponsor and is completely independently funded, your contribution will help cover the significant costs of international travel and other essential expenses.
We need a total of 20L to bring our dream to reality. We aim to raise 5L OR MORE through crowdfunding.
While our partners and organizers in the US have taken care of accommodation and logistics, we seek assistance in raising funds specifically to cover the substantial international travel expenses. Join us in making this musical dream a reality by contributing to our travel fund.
Be a part of this remarkable journey, as we come together to celebrate the power of music and create unforgettable experiences for audiences across the USA. Your support will enable independent artists who are passionate about the arts to bring Indian classical music to the world.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept and is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations and ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding.
