Members of British band The Dire Straits Experience, after their debut India tour, are enthused to find out more about the music of the country.

They performed in Gurugram on March 17 and in Bengaluru on March 19 as part of 100 Pipers 'Play for a Cause', an initiative that will this year focus on helping to provide sustainable drinking water to villagers in Rajasthan.

Original Dire Straits band mates Chris White and Chris Whitten were here, supported in the lead by Terence Reis, Tim Walters, Simon Carter, Danny Schogger and Paul Geary to perform hits like "Money for nothing", "Walk of life, "Brothers in arms", "Sultans of swing", "Romeo and Juliet" and "Tunnel of Love".

Chris White spoke about wanting to visit the Akshardham Temple in Delhi, but could not manage time for it. However, he said he is still eager to visit the place and will definitely plan it the next time he comes to the country.

The band members were amazed to see the love for their music in India, and they were encouraged to discover more about the Indian music scenario. Chris White, in fact, said he would try and seek help to list the works of great musicians in the country.

He also spoke of how the "power of music is incredible and it brings together people across nations and cultures".
