Speaking at the launch Ron Cha said, “Maati is a journey through the folk music of Assam, India. For centuries, Assamese folk has been creating the most angelic melodies capturing the essence of their day to day lives."

"When I had the opportunity to delve into my own culture over the pandemic, I had the calling to document these beautiful melodies and make them my own with my Jazz, Soul and Gospel influences. ‘Maati’ translates to ‘homeland’ and this is my humble tribute to my roots," he added.
