With Bhoomi's lyrics, one can paint visions in their thoughts, their souls and imagination while the music touches various chords in the heart. The music is simple yet evokes profound thoughts. Folk styles like baul, bhatiyali , moishaal, jhumur,saari gaan, qawaali forms the inspiration for Bhoomi's musical expression. Bhoomi has this unique feature of blending different styles of music. For example, Bhoomi has used a rock and roll arrangement with a typical bengali folk song (Rock and roll guitar playing for the song Sohaag Chand, in the album Paal Chhutechhe) or even used blues with a contemporary song (Song Bhasate Paarli Na from the album Dekhtey Dekhtey) , reggae (Song Kande Sudhu Mon from the album Jatra Shuru and Sonali Chander Alo from the album Udaan) rap (Song Picchu Picchu from the album Udaan), Goan folk tune (Song Kaam Sarse from the album Jatra Shuru), the famous lavani rhythm of Maharashtra (Song Chandni Raatey from the album Dekhtey Dekhtey) the typical 'toppa" inspired style of singing (Song Logen express from the album Udaan), Irish folk form (Song Tori Baorey in the album Udaan) and many such explorations where the blend and the brew seems ideal for the sound that is quintessentially BHOOMI .
