The Sufi Gospel Project, the brainchild of Indian classical vocalist Sonam Kalra, is an attempt to blend all the voices of faith, through the use of song, music and the spoken word.

Sonam Kalra steps out of the boundaries of faith to create soul-stirring tunes as traditional western gospel melds with Indian classical sounds, and Indian spiritual texts are enriched by elements of western poetry to create music that touches the soul.

With an ensemble of musicians, Ahsan Ali Khan, Amaan Ali Khan, Alex Fernandes, Rajesh Prasanna and Brennon Denfer, each melody is harmoniously produced by traditional Indian instruments that include a sarangi, a tabla, and a flute, melded with the guitar and keyboard. Since its debut in May 2011, they have made numerous appearances across India and performed to sold-out crowds.
