Strings Bollywood and Sitar Fusion – Sounds of India
From classical ragas to modern Bollywood song, Strings presents the best of the sounds of India, from ancient times to the present day. Whether you want a sitar and tabla duo to provide background music for a small drinks reception or a full festival-style band with dancers, Strings can fulfil your requirements.
Bollywood has taken over from Hollywood as the world’s most popular genre of cinema. Bollywood films are famous for their set piece song and dance spectaculars and the songs from the films have become as familiar as the films themselves.
Strings Bollywood Band is one of the foremost exponents of the genre in the UK. The band has an international reputation and performs around the world – from Trafalgar Square, London to Red Square, Moscow! Dressed in colourful traditional costume, Strings Bollywood Band presents the best of Bollywood, mixed with songs from other popular musical genres, such as Gujrati and Bhangra.
The line-up is keyboard, drums, bass guitar and Indian percussion, fronted by either a male or female vocalist. The band can also include a troupe of dancers, gorgeously dressed in traditional costumes to provide an onstage song and dance spectacular to rival the Bollywood movie experience.
