Home SOS: Award Wining Musician Sushma Soma Turns Bangalore Musically Sustainable
Independent music in India is growing at an unimaginable speed. There are some incredible artists who are creating spectacular masterpieces as you read this. Speaking of incredible work, award-winning artist Sushma Soma is on a mission to make music sustainable. Confused? Let`s tell you more about it.
Known for her stellar contribution to the independent music scene, Sushma Soma is a Carnatic singer known for albums like Home and Maed in India. Her song Grief has become an indie icon and continues to top the charts.
Apart from being a musician, Soma is also passionate about subjects like the environment, nature, sustainability, wildlife, animal welfare, and more. With her new venture, Home SOS: Sounds of Sustainability, she unveils a live production that goes beyond a musical experience.
Home SOS is a powerful call to action for saving our planet through simple shifts by making conscious and eco-friendly choices that result in enhanced empathy for nature, wildlife, and the environment. Led by Sushma Soma, Home SOS is a project in collaboration with multi-percussionist and music producer Praveen Sparsh and Bharatanatyam maestro Mythili Prakash.
Sushma`s vision for Home SOS comes from her renowned and well-received album HOME, an ode to her love for our planet and an aim to spread awareness about protecting and nurturing the same.
Created with Indian-origin American composer and musician Aditya Prakash, her album HOME was critically acclaimed. The tracks from the same were also featured on BBC Radio, Songlines Magazine, Rolling Stone India, and NHK Japan. In fact, her track Grief was selected by ace indie musician Anoushka Shankar for the Queens PLaylist on BBC Radio.
And now, Sushma is all set to bring Home SOS: Sounds of Sustainability as an extension to her album in India. Her first show is scheduled for January 20, 2024, at the Bangalore Creative Circus. The launch of the same would`ve been nearly impossible without the unshakable faith of partner brands like ZEDi, Believe, Turno, XL Laboratories Pvt. Ltd., and Skrap.
Speaking about the vision and mission of her passion project, Sushma Soma said, "We wanted to ignite a spark within every individual attending a “Home SOS” show, encouraging them to make changes that benefit both themselves and the environment. We envision creating a growing community of sustainability-conscious citizens, fostering change through music and shared values."
She further continued, "And our first show in Bangalore is the beginning of that journey in India. Through musical tours, we aim to make sustainability a part of everyday conversations across India by speaking the universal language of music."
The first show is a collective of inspiring solo acts with collective performances that will touch your soul. These acts send a message of inclusivity and diversity. The performances aim to cover an array of emotions, including wonderment, grief, anger, and hypocrisy, with humanity`s intricate relationship with the environment at its core.
