Bollywood Strings

Bollywoodstrings

Bollywood Strings was created in 1999, inspired by UK's thirst for cross over music and is led by violinist Chandru who has worked with the likes of Nitin Sawhney, Talvin Singh, Ravi Shanker, George Harrison, Bjork, Tina Turner, Britney and many others and has made a name as one of UK's foremost Bollywood string
arrangers. Our group is versatile and performs crossover east-west music intimately with up to 6 musicians (violin, tabla, guitar, keyboards & vocal) or with the full shebang of live Bollywood violists and other string players, notably at the Barbican several years ago and many summer festivals in the UK.
Bollywood Strings is also associated to flamenco music through the album 'Yerbaguena' with Gypsy maestro Pepe Habichuela. One other fantastic
collaboration that we specialise in is violin, tabla and DJ which we have performed at many clubs in the UK.

There is a webpage dedicated to concert promotion and it contains photos, music & videos. I have also included some proposed packages. Of course this is not all that we do and often work to cater to the requirements of the promoter and can put up events from a few as 3 musicians to 40 musicians.
