Saregama has announced the first ever world tour of Kailesh Kher and his band Kailasa, later this year.

Kailash is a revered Indian singer, lyricist and composer whose prodigious vocal gifts, poignant writing and inspiring personality have made him a household name across the globe. Kailasa, formed in 2004, is made up of Kailash and brother duo Naresh and Paresh Kamath.

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 Bandey۪, Teri Deewani۪ and Saiyyaan۪ amongst many others. He will also perform tracks from his highly anticipated upcoming album Rangeele۪, releasing on the Saregama music label in January 2012, and Nusrat classics like Sanu Ek Pal Chain Na Ave۪ and Ishq Ka Rutba۪.

“This will be the seventh groundbreaking live extravaganza to be organised by Saregama Events. As we have done in the past, we promise to bring something special for Indian music connoisseurs in the UK. Kailasa۪s unique brand of music and Kailash Kher۪s extensive repertoire will appeal to the NRI and South Asian Diaspora as well as lovers of world music. Judging by Kailash and his band Kailasa۪s ever growing popularity at home and abroad, the 2012 concert tour is sure to be standing room only.” – Amarpal Singh Gaind, Saregama PLC, Head of Operations – Europe.
