The international success of Bollywood movies has taken Indian culture to the world, and brought the music of its composers from the cinema into the concert hall.
A R Rahman’s moving music for Slum Dog Millionaire leads the charge, explicitly aiming to mix ancient Indian traditions with new musical styles, and in the process winning almost every movie-music award on the planet.
Bollywood is all about its songs, presented with dazzling colour and movement as the QSO brings Asia’s most vibrant musical culture to Brisbane’s City Hall.
