Sonam Kalra & The Sufi Gospel Project
Sonam Kalra is that rare breed of singer who has been trained in both Indian and Western music traditions and is equally adept at both. She has a rich, powerful, yet sensitive voice that touches the soul, with an ability to blend styles, yet stay true to the music.
Over the last 2 years Sonam has been researching the music and texts of different religions and has devised a musical genre called ‘The Sufi Gospel Project’. The Sufi Gospel Project is an effort to blend all the voices of faith, through the use of song, music and the spoken word. Traditional western gospel melds with Indian classical sounds, and Indian spiritual texts are enriched by elements of western poetry to create a sound that touches every soul.. The music of The Sufi Gospel Project carries with it a message of freedom from boundaries, walls, religion and labels. It is music of acceptance of all humanity and secularism.
