About: Classic Soul Meets Classic Bollywood

Club Asia Presents: BOTOWN
CLASSIC SOUL MEETS CLASSIC BOLLYWOOD

Take a musical trip from Memphis to Mumbai with this ultra funky exciting new 10 piece Asian Soul Funk band that melts genres, cultures and sounds in a show-stopping series of gigs this Summer.

Venue: Watermans
Dates: 15th & 16th May
Tickets: £25 or £15 in advance

BOTOWN is a super-tight band of multi-cultural musicians that bring together the classical sounds of India and Bollywood and serves them up with a unique Soul Funk twist. It’s an exciting culture-clash musical experience that takes you on a trip from Memphis to Mumbai.

The live performances combine the glamour of Bollywood and the charisma of the Soul legends from a band that is committed to bringing the house down with every performance and then playing on top of the rubble. And yes of course they have their own troupe of sexy dancers!

The band was put together by Ajay, a UK born musician with top-ten hits in India and who has worked with artists as diverse as Jamiroquai, Gregory Isaacs and the King of Bollywood himself – Shah Rukh Khan!

Says Ajay: “Bollywood and Soul are both music of the people. I’ve always been passionate about both, so combining the two is a musical dream come true. Fans of both music genres will be at home at the gig.”

The live music show features Bollywood hits mashed up with soul, blues & funk along with original music. Check out the sounds of legends like RD Burman, James Brown, Prince, AR Rahman, Sly Stone, Kishore Kumar and more in a way you’ve never heard them before!

The Botown band line up features: drums, bass, Indian percussion, horn section, guitar, male & female vocals, dhol, DJ turntablist, rapper and dancers, all completing the full live Bollywood Soul Funk experience!

BOTOWN: The Soul of Bollywood!

BOTOWN will be supported by comedian Alex Maple and hosted by Shak, Club Asia Breakfast show presenter.

Venue: Watermans Theatre 40 High Street, Brentford London, TW8 0DS
Tickets: £25 or £15 in advance
