Occasionally, you come across a fresh take on a very old issue and the students from Christel House in Bangalore have certainly done just that with their music video “Stop the Drop”.
They rap about saving water and “by using sound effects created by splashing, dripping, pouring, and even flushing water…they have reinvented and emphasized the way human beings interact with one of our most precious resources”.
They won the Audience Choice Aware in the Adobe Youth Voices – Aspire Awards and you can check out their video here. I love how catchy the clip is and the way they have constructed the soundtrack from some different uses of water.
What makes this all the more fascinating is that Christel House is an NGO that provides a free education to students from 18 different slums across Bangalore. So, it is great to see what kids can come up when they are given the space and tools to be creative!
