Bollywood Brass

I came across a fascinating brass band per Mr. Mannings post.  Combining elements of popular Hindu film music, traditional Indian wedding music, and Punjabi rhythms the Bollywood Brass Band has enjoyed years success in London and throughout the world.

Specializing in wedding ceremonies, educational outreach programs, as well as numerous recordings and tours the group has become Britain's first Indian style brass band.

The dohl is a distinctly Indian influenced drum that is featured in the bands performances.  The attached video showcases some of the bands most popular excerpts.......and looks to be a very lively juncture!

  1. Wow! These kids are wild! I wonder if there is some kind of training camp you have to go through to be in this group.
