With the curtains down on Times Youthopia 2007, an Inter-College Talent Festival, the organizers have roped in eminent Bollywood and sufi singer Kailash Kher to participate in the closing ceremony, on 1st September, at the Nizam College Grounds.
Kailash Kher is a popular Indian singer of sufi music. He has recently risen to fame with a series of hits. He has released music with his band Kailasa. The band includes Mumbai musician-brothers Naresh & Paresh, who were earlier associated with Bombay Black.
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. Kher provides a uniquely soulful, raw, high-pitched voice. He sang a number of the songs in the Bollywood film Mangal Pandey: The Rising, in which he also had a cameo appearance. His other Bollywood appearances include one in the movie Corporate, in the song O Sikander. His latest song Tauba Tauba from his album Kailasa as also the song Ya Rabba are again on the way to becoming record-sellers.
Kher hails from New Delhi, where he learnt Hindustani classical music. His is a virtual rags-to-riches story, as he rose from being a homeless resident of Andheri station (during his initial struggle to find a foothold in Mumbai) to Bollywood folkfore.
