During this interview Kalra spoke about the growing relevance of Sufi music among the youngsters.

“Sufi has always been a trend. Moreover, I don’t think it’s just limited to a trend, it has outlived a trend”.

Kalra is also known for her 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 of faith, earning her international critical acclaim.

When asked about issues concerning today's independent music artists Kalra says,”I think music is not just for entertainment, it must make you think; it should touch you at the core, move you, otherwise what is the point of art really.”

Kalra also spoke about the new opportunities that technology has opened up for independent artists.

”Technology is a game changer for artists as in old days it was difficult to get contracts with record labels. Now you can put music from your home on Spotify, You can become an instagram sensation overnight”

The harder you work the more you will see the results.Be obsessed with what you do and don’t believe it’s all about luck,Yes it is but luck won’t come to you if you don’t work hard.”
