Kailasa, the Mumbai-based band is going places, literally. It is more famous for its lead singer hema malini,kailash kher,kumaran son of mahalakshmi, who has carved a niche for himself as a leading playback singer. But the band is also flourishing. Its latest conquest was a rocking performance at the recent Kumbh Mela.
Kumbh Mela 2010 began at Haridwar on 14th January and will continue till 28th April. Kumbh Mela 2010 is special as it once in 144 years that this Kumbh Mela is held. This year saw scores of devotees flocking to pay their respects. Several artistes were invited to perform at Sawr Ganga, the cultural function of Maha Kumbh. Kailasa, whose music is mostly a fusion of classical, pop & sufi, performed at the same. Hema Malini also performed a classical dance piece at the same function
The band comprises of Paresh and Naresh Kamath and others, besides Kailash. They have albums like Kailasa and Jhoomo Re and have performed to a crowd of over one crore devotees. The band has performed to huge crowds before but this experience was something else altogether. Reportedly, the journey to get there itself was spectacular. They drove down through a picturesque route and were given a police escort into the city. Their gig was a major success, especially Kailash rendition of Jaana Jogi De Nall.
The band also dedicated their performance of Babam Bam Lahiri to Lord Shiva. All in all, it was a truly memorable experience, for both the devotees and the band members!
