All about Sonam Kalra - The Sufi Gospel Project Artist Main Artist: Sonam Kalra
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. 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.
I first conceived of this Project when Iwas asked to sing Gospel music to commemorate the birth centenary of the Sufi Hazrat Inayat Khan at the Inayat Khan Dargah in Delhi. I had sung the Gospel in churches and at other music venues but for the Urz of Inayat Khan, I wanted to create a sound that blended the faiths. I belong to the Sikh religion and am often asked why I sing the Gospel.
My answer is always the same; because God has no religion. I work with a keyboard player and guitarist who are Christian, my accompanists on the Sarangi and Tabla are Muslim, my flautist and percussionist are Hindus - a testament that when it comes to faith and music, religion is not relevant. The music emerged through a collaborative and organic process, combining our musical abilities, collective improvisation and fed off our diverse beliefs.
Khusrau blends with amazing grace, Kabir shares the stage with Abide, me and Bulleh Shahs voice is heard amidst English and Gaelic texts.
The Sufi Gospel Project is living proof that many different Hallelujahs can exist in harmony. This is the message we want to share through our music. It`s a new sound and quite unusual because we`ve blended traditional Indian instruments and sounds with age old Gospel hymns and Indian text and prayers. And because of the many languages and musical influences, we`ve combined, everyone is able to relate to it.
