It is the various experiences we have in life, which shape, mould and in essence create the person who we are today. It is the lessons we learn along the way and strength of self belief which motivates us to achieve. This is the journey of Chan Has.
Born in Manchester, Chan was surrounded by music when growing up, His grandfather, his mother and his father were all musicians, with his father having a successful band in the 80s. Music was the norm; he would be around singers and musicians all the time and would see the appreciation and love audiences would have for their talents.
At the age of 8 he started playing his 1st instruments and it was at this point, it was noticed he had a natural flair for music. It started with percussion and he quickly became so proficient that he was playing as percussionist at events with his father’s band. His first major appearance on stage came at the age of 13 when he performed with The Dhol foundation in front of a crowd of over 7000 at the Birmingham Mela. These were the first steps to learning the importance of having not only the skill but the confidence and concentration to perform when it matters. Over the years Chan learnt to play a variety of other instruments, including, Dhol, Tabla, Tad, Algoze, Flute, mandolin, Tumbi, Rajastani Sarangi, Baja, Keys and the list is growing as he aims to become the complete artist.
Chan Has is ready to release his brand new solo single Chori Chori feat Skyrah Kane, the single is available to download via iTunes on 9th December 2010.
