Shreya Ghoshal the multi-award winning pitch-perfect songstress, known for singing an endless list of Bollywood hits including Nagada Sang Dhol from the movie Ramleela, Chikni Chameli, Balma and Sunn Raha Hai stages her first full UK tour following her sellout Royal Albert Hall show in 2013. Though largely self taught she has reached a standard aspired to by classically trained Indian singers, thereby garnering critical as well as popular acclaim.
Ghoshal’s career began when she won the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa contest. Her Bollywood playback singing career began with Devdas, for which she received a National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer, a Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer, and a Filmfare RD Burman Award for New Music Talent. Since then, she has received many other awards. Ghoshal was also honored from the U.S. state of Ohio, wherein Governor Ted Strickland declared 26 June as “Shreya Ghoshal Day”. Featured in Forbes’ list of the top 100 celebrities of India, she was declared the most popular artist on India’s leading music streaming service in 2013, followed by Arijit Singh, A. R. Rahman, Atif Aslam, and Mohit Chauhan. In 2014 she was listed in the top 50 most influential Indian women.
This tour is the first national tour produced by Rock On Music and is the first time that work by S. Asian artists of such stature is being presented so widely.
