MC Tod Fod: Swadesi To Honor And Celebrate The Late Musician Through A Crowdfunding Campaign
Dharmesh Parmar aka MC Tod Fod was one of the finest hip-hop musicians in the independent scene. His lyrics spoke the truth and captivated hearts of thousands of hip-hop lovers. A Naigon, Mumbai resident, Parmar grew up with an old Bollywood soul and eventually fell in love with rap after listening to rap songs on Vh1. Swadesi rooted his love for hip-hop even deeper.
Earlier this year in May, we lost MC Tod Fod to a severe cardiac arrest. He was barely 24 and left his friends, family, and everyone in the independent space in shock. A musician with such deep vision and impactful voice, his music is a legacy that Swadesi would carry forever. And for the same, the indie hip-hop band has come up with a crowdfunding campaign to honor and celebrate MC Tod Fod and his music.
Aiming to conduct a 2-day long music festival, Dharmesh's crew matest at Swadesi will now carry on the flag of his spirit and music forever. These two days will begin with the 'Tod Fod' followed by celebrating Dharmesh's life via Live HipHop Music, Flow Arts and Graffiti.
Funds from the music festival will be used to conduct a music festival in honor of the indie musician and creating TODFOD.org, a virtual museum containing thousands of pieces of his music, memories, and video clips shared by his close ones.
All profits from the merchandise and event will be split in:
- Family - 60#37 of the share will go to his family for a secure future
- Online Museum - 20#37 to build the website that will also include his unreleased work
- Environment - 20#37 will go to Aarey Forest and Mumbai's ecology since the rapper was passionate about such conservation activities
We hope you're in a better place today, Parmar. Being a loyal supporter and encourager of independent music, we are proud of what Swadesi is doing here. This is our
