India, 11th September 2017 - One of dance music’s biggest artists, KSHMR, continues to raise the bar every step of the way, and as Diwali comes to a close, the festivities will continue as he embarks on his first tour of India! 

Fresh off a colossal headlining act at Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival this year, and Sunburn Festival last year, Niles Hollowell-Dhar the Indo-American DJ, record producer from Berkeley, California is set to tour his homeland this year with an intrinsic nationwide tour promoted by Percept Live that hopes to be a hallmark for auditory exploration transcending borders.

It is no secret that Hollowell-Dhar has always had a strong connection to his Indian roots. His father came to the United States from Kashmir, India — where the moniker KSHMR is derived from — at the age of 25. He married Hollowell-Dhar’s American mother, but kept his obligations to his family in India by making regular visits home every couple of years with his son in tow.
Ranked #12 on DJ Mag’s 2016 list of top 100 DJs, KSHMR has been making India proud by taking his heterogeneous sound to different parts of the world, and has been hailed by many, as a champion of his unique global sound. He fabricates beautiful sonic blends with a palette that brings the best of Asia and the Middle East into contemporary European and North American dance styles. Referred to as the ‘Prince of Cinematica’, the former pop producer has taken the EDM world by storm with his emotive performance led productions that translate into epic live shows, that take the audience on a visual and auditory journey into the world of KSHMR.
The comportment in which he has managed to innovate in big room and house is awe-worthy, one such praiseworthy act was when he was the live headliner for this years Ultra Music Festival in Miami. KSHMR brought a whole new touch to his live sets, with a team of 8 musicians and an indigenous traditional dance troupe accompanying him, embracing his Indian heritage and bringing a taste of India to the global giant festival.
KSHMR who always lands in the top 100 of the Beatport overall charts states, “I attribute a large part of my success to India and the country has always held a special place in my heart. This is my first tour in India -- a homecoming of sorts and a moment I've long waited for. I plan to give people an experience that reflects just how important it is to me. Having CRY a part of this show is a huge honor for me because they address poverty at its brunt -- the children. They are the window of time through which we may leave some good beyond our own.”
KSHMR has worked with some of the leading names in the business –  Far East Movement, Enrique Iglesias, Robin Thicke, Selena Gomez, R3hab, Tiësto, Carnage, DVBBS, Borgeous, Dimitri Vegas Like Mike and Bassjackers to name a few. Peaking at number 1 with tracks including Secrets, Bazaar, and Megalodon, KSHMR has also authored a children’s book that accompanied the release of his first album, The Lion Across The Field. 
KSHMR’s latest endeavor 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.
Karan Singh, Global CEO - Sunburn elaborates, “KSHMR is an act like no other. Right from the curation of his sets, to the grand visuals that he incorporates that come together to make a truly multi-sensory experience. We had a phenomenal turnout and response last New Year’s Eve when KSHMR headlined the finale set at Sunburn 10. Taking it a notch higher this year we are curating a one of a kind arena tour that will bring to life an unparalleled live music experience and a memorable one for all attendees.”
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.

Ms. Soha Moitra – Regional Director (North ) – Child Rights and You adds,  "We are delighted to be the selected Official Charity Partners for KSHMR charity event. We hope that many more fans of KSHMR will come forward and extend their support in making this event successful. All the money raised will help us to ensure happy healthy and creative childhoods for underprivileged children in India.”
