International singing sensation, Kailash Kher is slated to rock the PanIIT Global Conference on Oct 10, 2009 in Chicago, IL. The PanIIT 2009 Global Conference will bring together a diverse group of thought leaders from industry, academia and government, including alumni of the prestigious IITs. President Bill Clinton (42nd President of the United States) and Nathan Myrhvold (co-founder of Microsoft) are some of the many eminent speakers and panelists at the conference who will be speaking about challenges and opportunities in the critical areas of education, energy and climate change, public health and digital infrastructure.
Kailash Kher’s first international commercial release, "Yatra (Nomadic Souls)" on Cumbancha Records has been released to critical and commercial acclaim in North America. Within one week it has broken into the iTunes Top Ten World Music albums. Kailash Kher and his band Kailasa have touring throughout North America in support of this album; wowing audiences throughout North America with sold out shows in Los Angeles, NYC, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco. They performed in front of nearly 18,000 people at LA’s Hollywood Bowl, site to such legendary performances by the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, The Doors, and Coldplay- and will be performing in front of nearly 80,000 at America’s most expensive sports stadium, the Texas Stadium in Dallas/Fort Worth. The band followed their electrifying performance at the Hollywood Bowl with a live on radio performance on 89.9 FM- KCRW’s "Morning Becomes Eclectic" radio program- marking the first time that any Indian artist has performed live on what is arguably America’s most important radio show. This radio program has been credited with introducing North America to many today’s most well known musical acts such as Coldplay.
Kailash Kher continues to solidfy his reputation, as India’s first true cross over artist into America and with upcoming tours in November, will undoubtedly become America’s first true Indian superstar.
