Singer Kailash Kher weaves his magic in Bangalore
The ‘Teri Deewani’ singer was live and unplugged yesterday and he successfully enthralled his audience with his inimitable voice.
Singer Kailash Kher speaks as wonderfully as he sings and this was very prominent when the ‘Allah Ke Bhandhe’ (yes he indeed is a gift from God) reprised his magical numbers and besotted Bangaloreans with his impeccable voice yet again. The singer seemed to be in an upbeat mood and was all praises about the city and its people. “Bangalore is a paradise for music lovers. Here people listen to all genres of music and this evolving culture makes it very different from other cities. The weather in the city is so beautiful that it reflects in the nature of people who live here. I find Bangaloreans extremely humble and caring,” said Kher who likes to dig into the South Indian delicacies.
And his love for Bangalore rather Karnataka is extremely predominant for the fact that he has lent his voice to many Kannada flicks like Jackie, Krishnan Love Story, Naanu Nanna Kanasu to name a few. “I thoroughly enjoy singing for Kannada films and Ekka Raja Rani, nanna kaiyolage remains my all time favourite. I am working on a lot of Kannada projects but then it’s very difficult for me to remember the names,” says Kher whose songs are a reflection of Sufi music.
“I love singing songs in the praise of God. And Sufi music is dedicated to that genre. There is divinity in every song that I sing because I am a firm believer in God. I am what I am today just because of Him. God makes me do everything that I am doing today,” says Kher, whose band's name is Kailasa which epitomizes divinity. Kailash Kher is a simple man and believes that everything around him fodders his inspiration. “I am a hard core nature lover. The beauty of nature and the very essence of life that surrounds me inspires me to sing and write. There is divinity in every form of nature. And a lot depends on how we perceive it,” he notes.
The day Kailash Kher arrived in Bangalore he was saddened by the news of the demise of the ‘Picasso’ of India MF Husssain, “He was a great artist and it’s extremely disheartening to learn that he is no longer with us. But then birth and death are two things which is not in our hands and God decides it for us,” he concludes leaving Bangaloreans in a state of trance with his heavenly melodies.
