New Delhi [India] | October 13, 2017 12:01:13 AM IST
Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam has collaborated with Indo-American DJ, record producer from California - KSHMR for a new single titled 'Underwater'.

Speaking about the same, Sonu said, "Working with Niles has been such an enjoyable and effortless journey. I have always wanted to explore a collaboration with an international artist who imbibes homogenous sensibilities into his music and I found a perfect fit with Niles. And Niles is also blessed with a heart of gold that makes working with him a blissful experience. Looking forward to many more collaborations with him."

KSHMR states, "'Underwater' has a really beautiful story to it. When my friend from India, Aayushman Sinha met me in Amsterdam he asked me to find out my grandfather's favourite singer. My grandfather's answer was Sonu Nigam. It so happened that Aayushman knew him and arranged a meeting. This is when the idea of a collaboration cropped up."

"As destiny would have it, we caught up in the studio in August 2017 in Los Angeles and decided to work on a track that I had written two years ago. We finished the entire track in less than a day! This song is special, not only because it represents the start of my career as KSHMR but it is also a gift to my grandfather who has been so instrumental in both my personal and musical journey."

KSHMR is also gearing up for his maiden tour in his homeland this year.

The tour begins in New Delhi and stops at Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Mumbai. Jai Wolf joins the tour as support and there will be surprise guests along the way.

Being a propagator of humanity and an ardent philanthropist, KSHMR will donate proceeds of his New Delhi event titled 'KARMA' (drawing inspiration from the law of the providence) to charitable institution, Child Rights And You (CRY) that propagates the welfare of underprivileged children through dignity, justice and equity for all.

The opening acts include the likes of Anish Sood, Nucleya, Shaan, Teri Miko, Ocientied, Mariana Bo, Kumail, The Unknown, Mr. Bose & Akash, Zenith & Hasit Nanda

KARMA goes beyond a KSHMR DJ set, and fans attending the show on October 20 will be taken on quite a journey, with KSHMR LIVE - an orchestral experience never seen before in India. Hasit Nanda, Nucleya and Anish Sood will also join this special event.

KSHMR has worked with some of the leading names in the business - Far East Movement, Enrique Iglesias, Robin Thicke, Selena Gomez, R3hab, Tiesto, Carnage, DVBBS, Borgeous, Dimitri Vegas Like Mike and Bassjackers to name a few.

KSHMR's latest endeavour is his own record label Dharma, which serves as a platform to showcase the best global talent in the world of electronic music, including KSHMR's latest EP Materia featuring Snails, Maurice West, Mariana Bo and more. (ANI)
