The Durgas is a rock band committed to bringing live music to challenged communities around the world. They were the first band to play in Mitrovica, Kosovo since the Balkan wars, as part of the ongoing United Nations peace and reunification initiative and took part in the XV International AIDS/HIV Conference in Bangkok, Thailand and performed in AIDS hospitals and orphanages. They toured throughout Asia, playing to children of migrant workers in Mumbai, India, in Sri Lanka to families displaced by the Tsunami, in Thailand at the Saphan Jai festival, and for Burmese refugees camps. Their experiences have led them to start their own foundation Music In Action, which has been supported by U.S. Campaign for Burma, Save the Children UK, the German children’s foundation WeltKinderLachen, Jack Healey (Human Rights Activist) and Michael Franti of Spearhead. The Durgas have shared stages with Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Chumbawamba, Noir Desir, Sonic Youth, and Fleet Foxes.
