Aditi Ramesh questions obsession with labels with her new release, Sambar Soul

Who would’ve thought that a chance comment by a random social media user on singer/songwriter Aditi Ramesh’s livestreamed gig, could be the title of her new indie release on the block.

Titled ‘Sambar Soul’, the track is the young songstress’ answer to anyone who is hell-bent on putting her music under a bracket. She states, “I find myself without a real answer when l’m asked what my musical genre is, yet people always want to know. Which made me think: we’ve become obsessed with labels, genres, adjectives and classification as a society; we don’t understand things in the absence of these. We’ve become afraid of having original thoughts, moulding our actions on societal notions of success, beauty and happiness.” The song has been produced, mixed and mastered by Ramesh’s longtime collaborator Mohit Rao.

Although her best abilities lie in rendering soothing Jazz with effective Carnatic vocals, Aditi admits that she find this categorisation stunting towards her growth as an artiste as she feels that her unique musical style is yet to be discovered.

You can now listen to ‘Sambar Soul’ on Radio City Freedom
