Christmas Show Spectacular
Kamahl is the name which, for over six decades, has identified the music and the unforgettable regal voice of a man who is one of the most sensational recording stars in Australian history.
He arrived in Adelaide from Malaysia as a Tamil Hindu schoolboy in the winter of 1953, after a tormented childhood under Japanese occupation. He was a black in an alien white country. A lone teenager speaking poor English, totally unfamiliar with Western music. In utter desperation to escape from inferiority complex and the Second-Rate Syndrome, he shyly learned to sing, inspired by great black artists such as Nat King Cole, Paul Robeson and William Warfield, all of whom he met!
The story of his life, which took him from a child in the cow paddocks of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to performing for Royalties, Presidents and Prime Ministers and to count among his friends some of the great and mighty, including a 13-year friendship with Sir Donald Bradman, is one of the most extraordinary adventures in show business.
Witness an unforgettable intimate show featuring his classic hits in this spectacular Christmas special, The elephant song, Daisy day, Sounds of goodbye, All I have to offer you, When a child is born and so much more!
