In May 2020, Soom T came back with the new album The Arch!
Already known as one of the best MC’s with her flow as exceptional as unique and her conscious lyrics, Soom T is showing us here that she is also comfortable with other musical styles. On the border of reggae, soul, hip-hop and traditional musics, she draws inspiration from the essence of spiritual music with engaged words of urban poetry.
1st Single - Far from home
Soom T, a Scottish singer of Indian origin, grew up in a poor district of Glasgow. For her, music is an escape and her brother makes her discover her taste for activist music with in particular Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy or Cypress Hill.
After fifteen years of activity and almost a hundred titles to her credit, she finally released her first solo album “Free As a Bird” in 2015 on Wagram Music which shows the full extent of her talent and her musical spectrum. Will follow, “Ode To A Karrot” (Khanti Records) in 2016 then “Born Again” in 2018 (Strong Foundation).
For the recording of her new album, Soom T naturally turns to his friend DJ Kunta who will produce all the songs. Composed and recorded with the Lyon-based band Highly Seen, this new album entitled “The Arch” catches the essence of the music of the one we now call “the princess of raggamuffin”! This new album is also the reflection of her Christian philosophy, as its title “The Arch” and artwork suggests, based on an extensive study of the gospels that have influenced all the songs.
In 2020, Soom T will hit the road accompanied by his musicians to present on stage this new album “The Arch” whose release is scheduled for May 15, 2020.
