Now, mu­sic takes a queer shape

Mid Day - - Daily Dossier -

The land­mark Supreme Court rul­ing that de­crim­i­nalises sex be­tween samegen­der cou­ples al­lowed the LGBTQI com­mu­nity to make it­self heard in dif­fer­ent ways, with­out fear. And one of these ways is through mu­sic, or more specif­i­cally, through an album called Queerism, which is in the works. Navi Mum­bai-based Pragya Pallavi is the mu­si­cian be­hind it, and she will re­lease Lin­ger­ing Wine – the first sin­gle from it – to­mor­row. “The track’s retro, Latin flavour gives a taste of the feast of mu­si­cal styles that fea­ture on Queerism,” Pallavi tells this di­arist, adding that a preValen­tine’s Day date is the best time to re­lease any song that cel­e­brates love and equal­ity.
