In harmony with one’s mental notes
Amusical evening in the city aims to support mental well-being. An initiative by Sanjivini Society for Mental Health (a non-profit voluntary organisation), this concert will have a performance by gospel singer Sonam Kalra.
Parul Khanna Parashar, director, Sanjivini, says, “The concert by Sonam Kalra and her Sufi Gospel Project is about how music transcends all faiths. Anyone who is going through emotional stress can come to us for counseling, irrespective of their caste, creed or gender. Her music has a healing effect and is unbiased in its affiliation for or against any religion.”
Kavita Shriram, senior volunteer at the NGO, says, “We help patients who suffer from mental disorders and depression by providing them counseling lessons, so that they are able to find answers to their problems. Music has a strong connect with people.”
The theme for the evening will be universal love and religion.
“The music by Sufi Gospel Project is a great healer because it is free from all language, caste, creed, gender, religion and disability,” Kalra says, adding, “My songs will be a blend of sufi, jazz, contemporary and bhakti songs.”
I will be performing on the subject of hope, equality and acceptance, which I think is very important from the perspective of mental health
