Bollywood meets Brass meets Bhangra as Bollywood Brass Band celebrates the 100th anniversary of Bollywood. Funky drummers and a hot six-piece horn section play massive hits from Indian films, driven by the huge beat of the dhol drum, and accompanied by video projections of dance sequences from the original Bollywood films. This special concert will trace the development of Indian and Pakistani film and film music from the first Indian feature film (Raja Harishchandra in 1913) right up to the present day. The band plunders the Bollywood canon and throws Brazilian samba, Punjabi drumming and British cheek into the Bhangra mix...With the BBB formation blowing, jostling for space and delivering the occasional sizzling solo, this was a sensory assault that oozed good humour and sent people noisily into the night.
