The Sufi Gospel Project by Sonam Kalra is an effort to blend all the voices of faith, through the use of song, music and the spoken word.
Multiple award winning singer and composer Sonam Kalra is that rare breed of musician who has been trained in both Indian and Western traditions of music and is equally adept at both.
Sonam’s unique brainchild, The Sufi Gospel Project, which blends the many voices of faith, through poetry, prayer and music to create one universal voice of faith, has earned her international critical acclaim.
Sonam has been recognised and appreciated for her all inclusive definition of Sufism and her message of peace and oneness has made her a popular voice at prestigious festivals and venues around the world including London, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Pakistan, Oman, Kuwait, Lebanon, Algeria, Dubai, Tunisia, Mauritius, Egypt, South Africa and the United States of America.
She has shared the stage with legendary musicians like Sir Bob Geldof and Sufi legend Abida Parveen and she has also been invited to share her work on secularism through music at various TED talks. Sonam Kalra and The Sufi Gospel Project have performed at the very prestigious Women in the World Summit, MTV Coke Studio, The World Sufi Peace Festival at the Pyramids, The Jaipur Literature Festival, RIFF and The World Sufi Spirit Festival in Jodhpur, the International Faiz Festival for peace in Pakistan and at the the Indo African Summit for the Indian Prime Minister, President of India and 52 heads of African states.
Sonam has a beautiful and powerful voice with an honesty and sensitivity that is rare and the music that she creates with Sonam Kalra and The Sufi Gospel Project is an amalgamation of everything that she has learnt and believes in.
Sonam hopes that through the music of The Sufi Gospel Project she can spread the message of equality and help build bridges of peace in the future.
