Bombay Royale – Australia

Funky and mysterious music from vintage Indian cinema is being affectionately revived by The Bombay Royale. Dedicated to dusting off relics from 1960s and 1970s Bollywood soundtracks, the ensemble recreates a broad and eclectic spread of musical styles, from slammin’ surf sounds to extravagant disco and funk tunes. The cinematic nature of this music and the many genres it borrows from produces a heady cocktail of eastern and western influences. The band is fronted by Parvyn Singh and Shourov Bhattacharya, who sing largely in Hindi. The rest of the band is drawn from the cream of Melbourne’s live music scene together with guest tabla player Sam Evans, and Josh Bennett on sitar, dilruba and tabla.
