Bollywood Then & Now — Monday Night World Music 6–8:30PM SLT

This week marks the 3rd anniver­sary of the orig­i­nal incar­na­tion of Mad­hu’s Café, the home of Mon­day Night World music. And what bet­ter way to cel­e­brate than to return to Mad­hu’s Café’s roots: the music of Bol­ly­wood.

Bol­ly­wood” is a catch-all term for the main­stream Hin­di-lan­guage movie indus­try cen­tered in Mum­bai. The songs from these movies have been part of the heart of Indi­an pop­u­lar music for many decades. Tonight’s Mon­day Night World Music explores these diverse and bril­liant sounds from the ever­green hits of the 1950s right up to the brand new music of today’s movies.

If you’ve nev­er heard Indi­an pop­u­lar music this is a great chance to hear some of the best music in the world. And if you have heard it, you know why I call it that! The ear-catch­ing, foot-tap­ping music of Bol­ly­wood blends tra­di­tion­al Indi­an sounds with every­thing from big-band jazz to rock-and-roll — and then some — to cre­ate an addic­tive, unique­ly Indi­an style.

Come hang out with me (Carter) and enjoy the masala tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT. Indi­an dress encour­aged but com­plete­ly option­al. You can join us in world at Mad­hu’s Café Indi­en, or lis­ten in on Radio Riel’s main stream. Hope to see you there!
