Kailash Kher’s biography

The band Kailasa includes Mumbai musician-brothers Naresh & Paresh who were earlier associated with Bombay Black. Kailash Kher is currently a sensation in the playback world of bollywood. He hit the limelight with the smashhit Allah Ke Bande, part of the soundtrack for the relatively obscure movie Waisa Bhi Hota Hai Part II. Kailash Kher provides a uniquely soulful, raw, high-pitched voice. He sang a number of the songs in the bollywood flick Mangal Pandey: The Rising, in which he also had a cameo appearance. His other Bollywood appearances include the movie Corporate in the song 'O Sikander'. His latest song Tauba Tauba from his album Kailasa and especially the song Ya Rabba is again on the way to become a record-seller. He originally hails from New Delhi, where he learned Hindustani classical music. His is a virtual rags to riches story rising from being a homeless resident of Andheri Station (during his initial struggle to find a foothold in Mumbai) to Bollywood folklore.

Though not trained in the conventional sense of the word, Kailash Kher has managed to break stereotypical images that define the world of music. He says, “Playback singing happened by chance. I had lost everything in business. That was when my friends told me to try my luck in Mumbai where I first recorded a private album with composers Paresh and Naresh. Together we now represent a music band called Kailasa.”

The genius composer A R Rahman on Kailash Kher "I remember how I first heard of him. I had asked Mehboob, our lyricist, for a new voice that is earthy and strong, and he said, I have just the person for you. That voice can only be that of Kailash!' And he sent Kailash to meet me. 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! Allah Ke Bande is one of my all time favorite songs"
