Saregamapa 2012 – Kailasa’s First World Tour
Saregama is extremely proud and excited to announce Kailash Kher and his band’s first ever World Tour – Saregamapa Kailasa 2012 .
The world tour kicks off in the UK on April 4th, 2012, visiting prestigious venues in London (HMV Hammersmith Apollo), Birmingham (Symphony Hall), Liverpool (Philharmonic Hall) and Leicester (De Montfort Hall). The tour will make a pit stop in the Netherlands before moving on to North America.
Kailash will cover 20 cities with his band Kailasa, performing crowd favourites like ‘Allah Ke Bandey’, ‘Teri Deewani’ and ‘Saiyyaan’ amongst many others. He will also perform tracks from his highly anticipated upcoming album ‘Rangeele’, releasing on the Saregama music label in January 2012, and Nusrat classics like ‘Sanu Ek Pal Chain Na Ave’ and ‘Ishq Ka Rutba’.
Kailash’s rich, powerful voice has earned him comparisons to Pakistani legend Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, but his populist approach and knack for writing catchy hits with his band have helped him bridge the divide between traditional and contemporary styles. Since 2001, his credits include over sixty different film soundtracks and nearly two hundred jingles, plus stints as a judge on popular television shows, such as Indian Idol, IPL Rockstar, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs and Kurkure Desi Beats Rock On.
