Hindi, English and Bhojpuri lyrics combined with the sounds of Soca, Calypso and Filmi music...CHUTNEY! will entertain you with the story of a Magic Rickshaw using up-tempo songs and vibrant, interactive dance sequences inspired by the sounds of the Indo-Caribbean.
Chutney! is a new strolling street band and programme of music led by renowned British Asian musician/composer Kuljit Bhamra. Kuljit has written hit songs, film scores and West End musicals. He is also a pioneer of the worldwide Bhangra phenomenon, combining traditional Indian rhythms with western instruments and multi-track recording techniques.
The inspiration for this band is "Chutney" music, the popular musical style of the Indian community in Trinidad that blends influences from Asia and the Caribbean. A spicy mix of tabla, guitars and percussion!
