Young singers get to sing with AR Rahman

THEIR voices may be familiar to some as singers Lady Kash and Krissy are making waves in the music industry.

They recently made a huge impact by singing with Academy Award-winning musician AR Rahman for his Enthiran album.

Enthiran, which means Robot is considered the most expensive Indian movie ever made by director Shankar and superstar Rajinikanth with Bollywood doll Aishwarya Rai Bachan as the leading lady.

The song Irumbile Oru Idhaiyam (There is a heart in a steel) is already a certified hit and the girls are humbled by the encouraging response.

Saradha Krissy, 19, and Kalai Kash, 20, who hail from Singapore, both met through a social networking site and have been friends for four years.

Their genre of music features Pop, Hip-Hop, R&B, Rap, Urban and World Music.

They were referred to Rahman by a fellow singer in the Indian cinema industry, who had heard them during a song recording.

They two were also part of Rahman’s team for the Tamil anthem song entitled Senmozhi (classical language), which was the theme song for the World Classical Tamil Conference held in Coimbatore, India in June 2010.

“On a higher and more powerful level, we believe it was a spiritual alliance as working with Rahman was one of our dreams.

“Working on Enthiran was truly a humbling and exciting experience,” they said, adding that they were thankful to Rahman for his faith in them.

They also said that music is a boundless ocean and that they would not limit themselves to just one genre.

“When we started, it took us time and a lot of hard work to build a fan base.”

“Now, our listeners are supportive. Even as we go forth in our musical journey, our earliest experience of working on Enthiran will be most memorable as we had so much fun,” they said.

Currently, Lady Kash and Krissy are working on their promotional album entitled Dreams, which is to be released by the end of the year.
