After a forced two year hiatus due to health reasons, Sonali has returned with a new sound. She is fresh off the stage from opening for the headliner Pitbull on the Ford Stage at Florida's acclaimed SunFest 2018 Music Festival.
Just as her career as a pop/folk songstress was starting to flourish, Sonali was sidelined with health issues forcing her to take time to focus on herself. Through that, she’s not only on the road to recovery, but has also expanded her sound.
Sonali’s biggest plunge into the music world came in 2012 when she was invited to attend the prestigious Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. There she worked with some of the best in the industry, studying under numerous GRAMMY award-winning professors and music industry veterans such as Questlove, Bob Power (D'Angelo, A Tribe Called Quest), Nick Sansano (Sonic Youth, Public Enemy), and Amund Björklund (Train). In December 2012 Sonali and her classmates collaborated to create a viral cover of Rihanna’s "Diamonds." After being featured on Buzzfeed and by Ryan Seacrest, the video garnered the attention of Rihanna herself, who invited the group to a show in Newark, where she congratulated them on their work.
In 2014 Sonali showcased a dynamic mix of sparkling songs paired with her energetic and auspicious vocal authority on her debut EP, Wake Up. The EP served as the introduction to her as a performer and songwriter. The strength of these tracks earned her recognition as one of the Top 20 Prospects of 2014 by Music Connection Magazine, as well as a Huffington Post feature for her politically-charged "Who We Are" music video.
