(Uttarakhandi Folk)

His voice evokes memories of the mountains and resonates faintly like a faraway echo. Hailing from the hills of Uttaranchal, Suresh Kala sings the tunes of his land to render soulful pahadi music. Question him about his music and Suresh takes a trip down memory lane when his mother would wake him up every morning to folk tunes narrating stories of his ancestors and their lives in the mountains. Suresh moved to Mumbai as a young man in 1987 with his memories and a treasure house of folk music as companions. Settled in Navi Mumbai, Suresh made his debut on the Folk Arts stage in 1991 at the Marathi Sahitya Samiti, Mumbai.

Trained in Hindustani Classical Music under Late Shri Vasantrao Kulkarni in Mumbai, Suresh has been a regular performer on the Uttarakhandi associations in Mumbai. Suresh also has the distinction of being NSPA’s debutant performer having performed alongside Jishnu Guha at our pilot performance at Churchgate station to a packed and captivated audience in June, 2012.

Audience Feedback

“Very calming. Feels good at the railway station”

“I reached Vashi station tired and worn out from the days work, to see a crowd formed around a man, went to investigate, and I saw a man performing a song which sounded like Sufi music to me. His voice echoed through the granite corridors of the station and the merry strums of his guitar filled the air with melancholy. I stood there hearing his song about finding God in ones own belief, reminded me of Kabir ke Dohe which i had read when i was a kid.”

“Bandra station se jo gaana suna. Uske kuch achchi baatein aur ek achchi samajh mili hai. Jisise mujhe fayda ho, saare kaam achche tarah se karta hun aur sabhi ko achcha se achcha kaam kar pata hun !!”

“Can be more interactive. Otherwise very innovative !!!”
