Some of the Media Reviews about Pragya Pallavi and Queerism

“Get ready to enjoy an upcoming album that takes a look at socially relevant issues through the eyes of the LGBTQ community.”

– Shunashir Sen, Mid-Day (Mid-Day.com)

“The first album by an LGBTQ artist to come out of India since the country legalised homosexuality is arriving this year via Pragya Pallavi, a musician and performer with an extensive range of influences.”

– Connor Young, GayTimes (gaytimes.co.uk)

“Recording artist Pragya Pallavi is not only breaking the glass ceiling in India’s music scene, she’s absolutely smashing.  The openly lesbian Pallavi is fighting for better representation of LGBTI women in India, especially in the music scene.”

-Shannon Power, Gay Star Loves (gaystarnews.com)

Girls You Rule!

“This one is the perfect song to listen to on Women’s Day. The acoustic number will inspire women across the world to look up to themselves and sing Girls you rule, out aloud.”

-Megh Rao, Sound Box India (soundboxindia.com)

“‘… a spirited acoustic track that radiates the message of positivity to women of all ages, backgrounds and sexuality.”

-Hear Me Raw Music (hearmerawmusic.monkjackpublishing.com)

“… an acoustic sing-along track which combines her powerful message of championing inner strength with easy listening, funky vibe.”

– The Hype Magazine (thehypemagazine.com)

Lingering Wine

“The single’s retro, latin flavour gives us a first taste of the feast of musical styles to be discovered on Queerism.”

–  RJ Frometa, Vents Magazine (ventsmagazine.com)

“The music is striking, the lyrics sensual… “

– Jisha Surya, Times of India (timesofindia.indiatimes.com)

“… a jazz-influenced song with power-packed vocals by Pragya.  The guitar strings accompanying the drums highlight Pragya’s western style… The guitar’s lead tune and Pragya’s vocals make the song an entertaining jazz number to groove to… Pragya Pallavi’s Lingering Wine is a celebration!”

–  Megh Rao, Sound Box India (soundboxindia.com)

“Sensual visuals backed by Pragya’s soulful yet commanding voice…”

–  Deena Theresa, New Indian Express

“… a sensual, jazzy homage to same-sex love that has almost a

cabaret-esque theatrical grandness.”

– Colour Me Stunned:  Rainbow of Music (colourmestunned.monkjackmusic.com)

“ The video for Lingering Wine is as groundbreaking as the song itself – it takes us through the heart-warming story of a couple in love, like any of us. The black and white look adds to the charm but as well as giving us a peek inside the dynamics of a same-sex couple, this video also managed to be an example of body-positivity. While speaking about love, the video shows us acceptance. It tells us to look at ourselves differently and proves that when we are confident in our skins, it shows.”

“ [A] stunning celebration of queer love…”

– Sam Damshenas, GayTimes (gaytimes.co.uk)

“As the protagonists in the Lingering Wine music video appear on screen, for a second you think of Ed Sheeran and Brittany Cherry in Thinking Out Loud. But the heteronormativity ends there; as singer Pragya Pallavi woos actor Kani Kusruti with the beautiful Fort Kochi as the backdrop, this sexy queer love song comes to life. Most importantly, without the male gaze.”

– Sreedevi Jayarajan, The News Minute (thenewsminute.com)

“This beautiful video celebrates all the colours of love and it needs to be on your Valentine’s playlist.  LGBTQIA+ artist and writer Pragya Pallavi has touched a million hearts by choosing to narrate a love story, which shows how beautiful love can be when we see it in all its rainbow colours.”

– Blush magazine (blush.me)
