Harshdeep Kaur to grace the UK
The concerts will take place at Barbican Centre (London) and Town Hall Birmingham, presented by Asian Arts Agency in association with the venues.
Known for her soulful songs and stunning voice, Harshdeep Kaur is one of the biggest Sufi music stars in the world. After becoming the first female to win two reality show singing titles in India, the Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan described Harshdeep as the ‘Queen of Sufi’.
Harshdeep has established herself as a leading playback singer for Bollywood soundtracks, working with some of the leading directors in the industry, including A R Rahman, Pritam Chakroborty, Vishal-Shekhar and Salim Suleiman.
Her beautiful rendition of Ik Onkar under the direction of A R Rahman in Rang De Basanti brought her global recognition in 2006 and became one of the most popular ringtones worldwide. In 2010, Harshdeep was part of A R Rahman’s Jai Ho World Tour, where she got the opportunity to perform for global audiences.
Harshdeep has performed on some of the leading Bollywood songs of the 21st century, with over 30 Bollywood super hits to her name, including Katiya Karun from Rockstar, Heer from Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Bari Barsi from Band Baaja Baaraat, Kabira from Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Ik Onkar from Rang De Basanti and Jugni from Cocktail.
She is also one of the few Indian singers to have worked in Hollywood too. Her song R.I.P. for Oscar-winner Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours in 2010 was nominated for the Oscars and Golden Globe Awards. More recently, Harshdeep has been performing at prestigious concert venues all over the world and performed at the Manchester International Festival in 2017.
