Tori Surat Unplugged: Sona Mohapatra releases new song for World Music Day 

The song spotlights the need to reach out and feel valued in the times of pandemic

Published: 19th June 2020

Singer Sona Mohapatra has conceptualised a new music video for World Music Day titled Portraits of Quarantine. The video timestamps the period of isolation with a ‘moving photo album’ of her band, crew, team members, and other people they have shared the lockdown with. It also includes a message to those battling loneliness and depression to reach out and seek support.

In the video, Sona performs the new song Tori Surat- Unplugged with a jazz-lounge soundscape and Ameer Khusraus’ poetry with her band. The song was composed by Ram Sampath and arranged and produced by Crehyl Periera. The music video has been shot individually by each team member and edited by Nitesh Bisht.

Speaking about the idea, Sona shares, "We don't have to have 'mental illness' to experience psychological issues during COVID-19's stressful impact on humanity. To cope, everyone needs connection and compassion. If we are lucky we have shared this quarantine period with someone who provides that support, be it by being physically around or even available virtually. This music video is an ode to that.”
