Testimonials

“Botown will take you back to the days of brilliant live gigs with its talented live musicians who bring out the funkier side to Bollywood classics.”
Eastern Eye

“Soulful… playful fusion” 
London’s Evening Standard

“Asian soul and funk outfit Botown have taken a bunch of Bollywood’s best-loved anthems and given them the ‘Shaft’ treatment; re-styling the compositions with Seventies-era Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield very much in mind. Tracks such as Laila and Jhalak have the sort of vintage grit that soundtracked Blacksploitation cops and robbers, but frontman Ajay Srivastava’s Hindi singing bursts with feeling, putting Botown way above the usual kitsch-athon this sort of thing often descends into. Elsewhere, Jamaican influences seep into the mix. A promising debut”
