India's Ambassador to Kuwait Sunil Jain lauded Tuesday the level of his country's bilateral relations with Kuwait in various fields, particularly in cultural and arts exchange.
The two countries' historic and distinctive relations have contributed in their cultural diversification exchange, which brought Indian and Kuwaiti peoples closer and boosted their bilateral ties, Ambassador Jain said in a press statement while attending an Indian musical evening by the Sufi Gospel Project troupe, hosted by the National Council for Culture, Arts, and Letters (NCCAL) at Shamiya Theatre.
Meanwhile, Sufi Gospel Project's vocalist Sonam Kalra said that her troupe presents a mixture of various Indian spiritual vocals through music, songs, and rhymes in which classic Indian vocals blend in with western gospel vocals.
Western rhymes enrich Indian spiritual texts, creating a vital vocal that touch hearts and spirits despite differences in language or origins as faith is the only language in the universal realm, Kalra added, noting that the Indian troupe presents a unique and unprecedented kind of music, in which traditional Indian musical instruments blend with classic Christian gospels.
She also indicated that the music of Sufi Gospel Project proves the possibility of creating harmony among various spiritual songs and music, expressing at the same time gratitude to NCCAL for hosting such evening.
