Kailash Kher

Kailash Kher is an Indian singer of popular sufi music. He has recently risen to fame with a series of hits. He has released music with his band, named Kailasa.

The band 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.
