Triya: Gargie Verma


Delhi-based Gargie Verma is academically qualified in Indian sounds and Western, and her talents not only as a vocalist – but also as a music composer and lyricist – are successfully showcased on “Triya”, which commences with a piano playing and with her humming. In keeping with the theme of women survivors of atrocities– the lyrics speak of, among other things, “I will survive” – the subject becomes more topical now, keeping in mind that various chauvinist male politicians fail to understand, quite simply, that women are human beings too. The subject takes me to the listening of late musician Lou Reed’s “Berlin” album — on which a fair amount of the album’s subjects are about various abuses. Gargie, with her distinctive high pitched vocals is paradoxically supported by music that is low on instrumentation, but the combination works most appropriately in support of the song’s theme.
