Sonam Kalra

Vocalist


Sonam Kalra has been trained in Indian Classical and Western music traditions and is equally adept at singing both genres. Sonam has learnt Indian Classical music from Smt. Shubha Mudgal and Pt. Sarathi Chatterjee and has also studied Gospel and Jazz with Ashley Clement in Singapore, as well as classical opera under the noted tenor, Hur Chul Young.

Sonam is known for her powerful yet sensitive voice and ability to blend styles, yet stay true to the music. Her singing reflects the special meaning it holds for her and she brings to it a truth that can move you from deep within, with a freshness and gaiety that are both invigorating and infectious. The Sufi Gospel Project, conceptualised and developed by Sonam 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. Revealing that no matter what the language of the lyrics, or the ethnicity of the sounds, there is but one language, the language of faith. And that is the universal truth. Khusrau blends with Amazing Grace, Kabir shares the stage with Abide with Me and Bulleh Shah’s voice is heard amidst English and Gaelic texts.

Owing to her versatility, Sonam is fast becoming a familiar voice at prestigious venues and festivals. Sonam has just returned from a six-country tour of the Middle East including performances at the Sama’a Festival in Cairo. Sonam has also sung in venues around Asia,South Africa, Europe and North America.
