’The Queen of Sufi’ presents an evening of Sufi classics and Bollywood hits.
Known for her soulful songs and stunning voice, Bollywood playback singer Harshdeep Kaur is one of the biggest Sufi music stars in the world and one of the leading Indian singers of her generation.
With over 30 Bollywood super hits to her name she has worked with some of the leading directors in the industry, including A R Rahman, Pritam Chakroborty, Vishal-Shekhar and Salim Suleiman.
The first female to win two talent 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, performing on some of the biggest Bollywood hits of the 21st century, including Katiya Karun from Rockstar, Heer from Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Kabira from Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.
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, she has been performing at prestigious concert venues around the world and performed at the Manchester International Festival in 2017.
Expect an evening of Sufi classics and Bollywood hits as Harshdeep mesmerises with her stunning voice, performing personal and audience favourites from her incredible career to date.
