Kuhoo Verma — Vocalist
What makes this land your land?
After recently unearthing old journals and artifacts in her childhood home, vocalist and actor Kuhoo Verma created heart land in an effort to search for an answer to this question. Weaving together songs from such genres as folk, country, and Americana together with recitations of writings throughout her life, Verma uses her unparalleled gift of storytelling and her captivating voice to grapple with issues of identity and otherness, and through the journey, discover what it truly means for a place to feel like home.
