Kalika’s latest single “Made Up” was released on the 7th of August. Kalika is the musical project of composer/songwriter Prannay Sastry, and has received a warm reception from the press and on social media. When Prannay lived in The Netherlands, he had a harrowing experience dealing with a racist supervisor at work. Up against a system that gaslit him at every turn, Prannay felt uprooted. He began to journal in order to process the situation and to feel grounded once again. His thoughts wended their way into “Made Up”. The song is at once atmospheric and vibrant, with lush vocals by Jay Kshirsagar and Sanjeeta Bhattacharya.
Prannay shared “Made Up” with friends, artists, and writers around the world, asking them to use the song as a prompt to express themselves. The results have been stunning, with creative interpretations flowing in.
Kalika is showcasing them on its Instagram, @kalika.music. Kalika is a truly collaborative artistic project, and we are so excited to share this with you and the world.
