The oeuvre of Soham Raha is essentially an inward journey of self-exploration with sound and image as its conduits. It attempts to understand life beyond the experience of the senses within the human body, delving deeper into it in search of the very essence of spiritual experience. 'Baul’ and ‘Sufi’ philosophy imbue this search with powerful meaning in his quest for this quintessence of existence. His ongoing practice of music with the mystics who’s poetic symbolism evokes a transcendental reality of life, continues to actively influence his artistic impulses. Believing that an inherent cosmic sound - the Anāhata Nād is the life-breath of every living entity, Raha attempts to uplift that sublime spirituality to a crescendo until it becomes the only everlasting truth, empowering and cleansing our social sensibilities. He looks towards indigenous culture as he believes it preserves popular consciousness most truthfully. Lived and imagined experiences, music and belief, come alive in his fantastical visuals that precariously balance strangeness and reality creating counter-narratives that resist the conventional paradigm of representing reality.
