There are hardly anyone out there who isn't mesmerized by Kailash Kher's soothing vocals! His raw voice and sufi style of singing has been ruling over our hearts since a long time. Born in a Kashmiri Pandit family in Meerut, UP, Kher's first brush with music happened at a young age. When he was all of 14, Kher believed isolation was required to hone his art and left home in search of a guru, who could teach him everything about classical as well as folk music. He began listening to the likes of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Nushrat Fateh Ali Khan and others.
Kher began his career by singing in ad jingles and bagged his first big singing break, 'Rabba Ishq Naa Hove' song from Akshay Kumar's Andaz. As the singer turns a year older today, we bring you 5 songs of Kailash Kher that are a must-have in your playlists-
