Geographic areas served: We work locally (New York City), nationally (USA), and internationally.

I had the pleasure of working with Yasmanth on a magazine article about their work. I came away from the experience impressed with the tremendous energy, determination, and talent that Yasmine and Anthony have harnessed to reach out to improve the lives of others. This is a unique organization that is truly brightening lives!

This charity helps children have a glimpse and a real opportunity to learn about other countries, cultures and music and dances , and art. Yasmanth is dedicated to providing children of all backgrounds a chance at art, culture, music, and dance from the most amazing places on the planet. This is an educationally oriented performance group and they provide all of the learning materials as well as the classes, lectures,
and audience participation. They inspire and motivate everyone to be creative and to strive for excellence in learning and in seeking knowledge of other cultures. They have created an amazing vehicle to bridge the gap between far away lands and those close by. Yasmanth has the ability to inspire everyone to seek harmony with all nations, cultures, languages, arts, music and dance! Yasmanth is spectacular !! A must see!

I would see to it that this organization receives more money from every organization that believes that children are our future.

What a wonderful program! Far more unique than most of our other cultural offerings. This group has a clear and obvious passion for the area they are focusing on. The Silk Road is a unique topic that is typically not addressed, especially through the arts.

Give them time and experience to refine their process organizationally and they will be unstoppable.

We are a non-profit that promotes and advocates for people with challenges. Yasmanth tailored their program to fit the needs of the population we serve. Since the vast population we serve is in the gray area, it is a priority to make sure that our programs cross cultural barriers. Yasmanth enhanced everyone's experience with their personal attentiveness.

The Aurora Over The Silk Roads workshop was educational and entertaining. It captured the audience in its entirety. Here at Scott Air Force Base Youth Center, children continuously join our program. Therefore, it would be my pleasure to welcome Yasmanth again, in the near future, to allow us to experience the fun cognitive activities and amazing performances.

Yasmanth created fantastic programming at our museum, engaging and delighting hundreds of children and families with their culturally and visually-rich performances, crafts, and activities. The music and dance performances were dramatic and mesmerizing and their hands-on activity stations unique and engaging. As an added bonus, the siblings behind this organization are an inspiration to children everywhere and, like the rest of their family, they are polite and professional. I would highly recommend Yasmanth and everything this nonprofit has to offer.

The Miami Beach Senior Center had the pleasure of hosting Yasmanth for an hour and a half show and activities. It was 8 years ago when we had Yasmine come to perform to us belly dancing and hula hoop. She gave an amazing show and the seniors fell in love with her. Now we were lucky to meet her all family. This is truly a one of a kind family. Anthony and Yasmine are an amazing team. They are so professional and entertaining. We loved the dance and the different station learning about the Silk Road. it was a family effort and the seniors could not get enough so we are going to have them again at the end of the month.
It is very nice to see a nonprofit organization led by teens and supported by their all family including the grandparents.

Yasmine is a yoga student and sometimes ballet student of mine. She is a dream come true in the teacher/student environment. Always looking for ways to challenge herself, she applies what I say and thirsts for more. This enthusiasm spills directly into her non-profit organization she and her brother Anthony founded several years ago. To see young adults have a passion for knocking down cultural barriers and educate their peers through their passion(dance and music) is nothing short of inspirational. To know they started as children is a wake up call to all of us to reach out and share our own personal passion with the world. Yasmine and Anthony, the cofounders of Yasmanth, are lovingly supported by their parents and grandparents making this a familial organization filled with love and enthusiasm. What a gift they share and lucky are those who have the chance to see one of their shows. I am humbled by my student. May we all be so privileged.

Yasmanth visited the Children's Museum of New Hampshire on October 9, 2012. They held the attention of our visitors - ages 2 through 12 - for hours! The entire family is involved and delightful. They presented a puppet show, drumming demonstrations and wonderful dancing performances. Stations were set up around the museum for children to learn about silk worms, camels, geography and more. I have never experienced such a professional and enjoyable presentation conceived and executed by teenagers! I highly recommend Yasmanth.

Anthony Garay, who has been my percussion student for years is a created this organization with his sister to pursue the teaching and performance of music and dance from many cultures. Anthony is a teacher's dream student. He is hard working, enormously creative, enthusiastic and appreciates all knowledge that comes his way. His skills at administering this NFP amazes me for a young man of his age. If any further recommendation is desired please contact me without hesitation at harmonicmotion.com
