Kamahl (Singer)  Malaysian-born Australian Singer and Recording artist
Souvenir Program Melbourne Concert Hall 1982

 

Kamahl is an Australian singer. Kamahl is the stage name of Kandiah Kamalesvaran born 13 November 1934), a Malaysian-born Australian singer and recording artist, perhaps best known for “The Elephant Song”, and his repertoire of popular music.

At his first public performance in 1958 he shortened his name to Kamal, but the Master of Ceremonies announced him as “Camel”. After that he changed the spelling to Kamahl.

His latest album is Imagine the World in Unison as of 2005. He is also making appearances as a judge on The X-Factor and has a sponsorship deal with Coca-Cola. On 19 September 2007 he featured on The Chaser’s War on Everything on ABC TV where he sang for a ‘newly-wed couple’ who turned up uninvited on his door.  In early 2008, Kamahl reunited with his old school, Pembroke (then Kings College), and went on tour in the United States with the Pembroke Symphony Orchestra.

A pops orchestra is an orchestra that plays popular music (generally traditional pop) and show tunes as well as well-known classical works. Pops orchestras are generally organised in large cities and are distinct from the more “highbrow” symphony or philharmonic orchestras which also may exist in the same city. This is not to say that the distinction is complete; many symphony orchestras (for instance, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra) put on pops performances with some regularity.

Guest Stars: David Ashton-Smith, Rosemary Boyle, Ashton – Smith Singers
