"I knew that here was a voice that was so wonderful"
Kailesh Kher and his band Kailasa will be touring the UK in April 2012. DESIblitz in association with Saregama Events is pleased to announce the opportunity for our readers to exclusively win seven pairs of tickets for the Kailesh Kher UK Tour shows.
Kailesh Kher’s first ever UK tour organised by Saregama Events, will see Kailash and his band Kailasa performing at prestigious venues in London, Birmingham, Liverpool and Leicester between April 4th-9th 2012.
Amongst Kailash’s biggest fans is double Academy Award-winning composer A R Rahman who says, “The moment I heard him, I knew that here was a voice that was so wonderful, and which had its own unique space… I want to say that Kailash Kher’s voice has something that had been lacking a lot – it had pure soul!”
Kailash’s extensive repertoire and Kailasa’s unique brand of music will appeal to the UK South Asian audiences as well as lovers of world music. Kailash with his band Kailasa will be performing crowd favourites like ‘Allah Ke Bandey,’ ‘Teri Deewani’ and ‘Saiyyaan,’ as well as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan classics such as ‘Sanu Ek Pal Chain Na Ave’ and ‘Ishq Ka Rutba.’
A highlight of the UK concerts will be a showcase of songs from their new album ‘Rangeele’. Since its release on the Saregama music label on 10th January 2012 ‘Rangeele’ has garnered admiration from Kailash and his band’s huge fan following in India and abroad, with their tracks being regularly aired on television and radio stations around the world.
In an industry where fickle item numbers and Hindi remixes rule the Indian charts for a few transitory weeks before disappearing, Rangeele is a refreshing change. A collection of songs with true staying power, they confirm Kailash Kher’s position as one of India’s most unique music talents and creator of music with substance.
Kailesh talking about the album says: “Each song in this album has a history or simply connects to an experience. Every song is a story in itself.”
Rangelee is indeed a gem of an album and listening to it will take you on a journey of depth, devotion and pure subliminal melodies crafted with the essence of Kailesh Kher’s voice and the gorgeous music by Kailasa.
You can win a free copy of Rangelee in our competition: Free Rangelee CD by Kailesh Kher.
