Randa Khamis & The Soul Kingdom (Live on Vocals) with DJs Gian Arpino and Phil Toke This Saturday 6th Nov @ Tonic Lounge


Tonic Lounge is proud to present the dynamic RANDA KHAMIS From RANDA & THE SOUL KINGDOM.

Randa’s last album was Produced by down under funk supremo Lance Ferguson (The Bamboos/Cookin’ On 3 Burners/Lanu) and was a steamy brew of blistering funk, impassioned soul vocals,  and edgy grittiness. Randa’s high octane vocals urge, push and provoke – so be warned!

Having supported Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, The Bamboos and Lionel Richie in Australia, Randa WILL have you up and dancing in an instant with her brand of 21st century deep soul.

About Randa

https://i0.wp.com/c1.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/65/m_47a7d9045d154850b20b44fa19cb1c3c.jpgBorn in Jordan from Palestinian parents, raised in the working class
suburbs of Perth, Australia, singer Randa Khamis caught the black music bug early. At the age of 12 she was talking her way into local clubs,
desperate to dance to the sounds of James Brown, Parliament, Kurtis
Blow, Ann Sexton and Aretha Franklin.

During her 20’s, Randa took up Belly Dancing and wanted to start
combining the use of Arabic rhythms with soul/funk vocals. She moved to London and began working with Moroccan band MOMO, KINOBE and Sasha Baron Cohens’ brother’s band ‘Zohar’ singing in Arabic. But it was with Leigh Gracie’s deep funk band ‘Speedometer’ that she spent much of her time singing, and after supporting the legend Eddie Bo, began touring with him in New Orleans, where he passed on his vast musical knowledge about performance and song writing. With this priceless experience under her belt, she returned to Perth, ready to harness her writing and recording experiences with her new band ‘Randa & The Soul Kingdom’. Moula Bux is a return to her Middle Eastern roots entwined in her funk/soul vocal influences.

Randa & The Soul Kingdom formed out of a common desire to write and perform in an authentic pledge to their funk/soul roots. A six piece band, consisting of trumpet, sax, drums, guitar, bass and vocals, they imbue a live, classic funk sound with a dynamic fresh edge they can safely call their own striking a balance between talented musicianship and emotional content. Receiving accolades from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings when performing in support, a debut single for sale
around the world, internationally airplay and interest and some stellar live performances to sell-out crowds are just some of the reasons Randa & The Soul Kingdom have been tagged as the next jewel to come from the music womb of Perth. “If Betty Harris, Patti Drew, Donna Hathaway or The Blackbyrds are names that have any meaning to you, proudly add Randa & The Soul Kingdom to your Funk Collection”
