Bengaluru: Talented musicians from Mizoram came together to raise funds for the families of the Pulwama terror attack victims through a special concert called 'Mizoram Stands for Pulwama' in Bengaluru, Karnataka on Friday evening.

Check out the video from the event:

On February 14, a convoy of vehicles carrying CRPF personnel on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was attacked by a suicide bomber at Lethpora in Jammu & Kashmir's Pulwama district, killing 40 security men.

Organised by Starpick Fantasy Sports, the event featured artistes such as Kimkima, Rebecca Saimawi, Sangtei Khuptong, Shai Hills and Undecided, among others.

Eight Cheraw dancers also joined the Mizo community to showcase their amazing talent.

"Last night, we celebrated a mini Chapchar Kut in Bangalore. Mizo bands came together to raise funds for the terror attack victims in Pulwama. This was our first edition and for the love of Mizoram and music, we will continue this tradition of hosting this event every year from here on," said Trigam Mukherjee, co-founder and CEO of StarPick and organiser of the concert.

Chapchar Kut is the biggest and most important festival of Mizoram and was celebrated across the state on Thursday and Friday.
