Music Basti’ began in 2008 to work with and empower street children through music. The program is currently working with 200 children in Delhi with organization Aman Bidarari and The YP Foundation. It is working to develop a music program that teaches basic music education, coupled with human rights education and life skills. It focuses on helping the children to develop self- identity, value orientation and attitudes. Alongside this, it endeavors to join together community needs of children at risk, particularly street children, with the efforts of the music community.

Music Basti is run by IDEA (Integrated Development Education Association), and supported by The YP Foundation. It works with Aman Biradari, and Bridge Music Academy. Music Basti was selected for the Change Looms development and assessment program in July 2009 (Pravah and Ashoka) and Vikalp: Searching for Alternates (UNESCO, UNFPA and The YP Foundation.). The project combines professionals and student volunteers and musicians. It aims to develop a collaborative and positive relationship between the music community, individuals and institutions, and through them raise awareness about the issue of child rights, and the use of the arts, particularly music to create this awareness.
