KiNG RAJ of the SUPERTONES BAND
“USA’s Most Toured Int’l Chutney/Soca Band”
* INTERNATIONAL ARTISTE * Actor * Humanitarian *
King Raj, the charismatic, multi-talented Chutney maestro, is the lead singer of the Supertones Band, a reputable NY-based Chutney-Soca orchestra that performs internationally, and has an enormous fan club. A relative neophyte in the Chutney-Soca genre, young Raj Singh catapulted into fame upon the release of his debut chutney music video “Caribbean Girls”, which so enthralled music lovers that they baptized him with the title “King Raj”. His caressing voice and inimitable style, uniquely carved out of his Guyanese-Trinidadian background, have enchanted large audiences on his concert tours in North America, Europe, and across the Caribbean. In 2008, he was a finalist in the highly competitive Indo-Caribbean Star Competition, held in Queens, NY. In Guyana during August 2011, King Raj, debuted in Nirvana Humanitarian Foundation musical drama “Visa Wedding”, which won him much acclaim for his acting skills. His versatility as an artiste was superbly expressed in Nirvana’s comedic “Holiday Laff Show”, staged in Queens, NY. King Raj, who holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science, initially honed his musical skills singing bhajans (Indian ballads) and playing the dholak (percussion instrument) in temples at the tender age of 12.
MUSIC is his PASSION!
“Work Hard to Play Hard-er!”
He strongly believes that there is enough for all of us to work together… An inclusive philosophy instead of an exclusive mentality. He also has much respect to all the DJ’s, MC’s, and promoters in our Indo-Caribbean community for spreading our rich culture!
The Supertones Band, led by Avinash Singh, also includes King Raj, and Princess Anisa. SupT, as they are affectionately called, has been tantalizing fans with scintillating performances… giving them a taste of bigger things to come. They are the 1st Chutney Band to ever play off-Broadway, breaking the barriers for West Indian music.
