Soom T, a Scottish singer of Indian origin, grew up in a poor district of Glasgow. She first joined a hip-hop group and then discovered sound systems, notably thanks to the collective Mungo’s Hi Fi, also from Glasgow. If rap remains her favorite mode of expression, Soom T lets herself be seduced by the reggae-dub scene in which she feels free.
She was quickly spotted by the public, notably thanks to her generous music and her incisive and inimitable flow. Soom T handles words with incredible ease and has always advocated sincerity in his words. She then became an essential artist in the underground reggae scene.
For the design 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"!
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.
"Fed up with hip-hop, the British singer is at ease in all registers, multiplies the collaborations with a disconcerting success."
"The Scottish rapper has become the most respected MC on the underground raggamuffin scene"
