About Sonam Kalra (Singer & Composer):
Multiple award-winning singer-composer Sonam Kalra is that rare breed of musician who is equally adept in both Indian and Western traditions of music. She has a beautiful, powerful voice with an honesty and sensitivity that is rare. But even more important is the fact that she is a musician with a message. One of equality, inclusion and tolerance. Sonam’s unique brainchild, ‘Sonam Kalra & the Sufi Gospel Project’ which blends the many voices of faith through poetry, prayer and music to create one universal voice, has earned her international critical acclaim and has had her perform in over 35 countries on prestigious stages including The Sydney Opera House, the Pyramids in Cairo, Rashtrapati Bhavan and MTV Coke Studio. Sonam has also shared the stage with musical legends like Abida Parveen and Sir Bob Geldof.
Sonam has been felicitated with many awards, including the Femina Woman of Worth Award, the Indian Express Devi Award, FICCI’s ‘Young Women Achiever’ award and the Global WIN Award for inspiring women worldwide.
She has used her voice to speak out for issues ranging from child abuse, women’s rights and animal rights to helping raise money for cancer charities and education for children. She has been a regular TEDx speaker and has spoken at WIN Conferences across the world.
