A first generation Indian Sikh from Philly to NYC to LA, Sarab Singh is no stranger to cultural differences in diet and how delicious and satisfying vegan/vegetarian food can be. Growing up, Sarab’s family ate all types of cuisine, as his mother always wanted him and his brother to feel as assimilated as possible. In the 80s/90s, there was little awareness on what was really going on behind the scenes. Plus, the vegan options were nowhere near where they are now, but even then, dairy was never something that appealed to Sarab. Not only did Sarab’s mother ignite his interest in diversity of food, but she inspired his passion for music, as she had always been on the artistic side of things, playing sitar, tabla, guitar, and singing since she was a child. Like mother, like son, Sarab surely maintains the artistic torch in his family. From touring drummer to creating his own music and beats, Sarab Singh is an amazing artist/performer, not to mention, he does it all with a consistent smile on his face!
“There is so much sadness in this world, and it's important to acknowledge it, but it's also important to never lose sight of the fact that there is so much good, and so many good people, and that we can lift each other up and make change and make this place better for every little soul that happens to be alive at this moment, and all of the moments to come. The reason that I smile so much is that I think at some point I learned that it makes people happy. That's a huge reason of why I get up in the morning. To bring joy and love to all of the beings that I meet throughout the day. I’ve realized in the last few years that my strongest talents are not my musical abilities, but my ability to spread love to those around me (I might have an ex-girlfriend or two who might disagree about that though, haha!).” - Sarab
VEGAN COMPANY PLUG
I have been a big fan of this store for a long time. I used to shop here when I lived in NYC, and now they have arrived in Silverlake. They offer womens/mens shoes, handbags, wallets, and many other accessories all made of good vegan alternatives.
I just got off tour with Ingrid Michaelson, and I'm currently working with the band Powers, who are releasing a new record in February. A support slot/headlining tour will follow soon after. In addition, I have my own solo project called KLVR GRL
, which is a live beat-production based project, using a mix of organic and electronic percussion. I should be releasing some music in the new year, but in the mean time, I'm doing some gigs at Satellite, Hotel Cafe, and other little spots on the east side of LA.
