Following on from Nascente’s “Tropical Funk Experience” & “Cuban Funk Experience” comes “Bollywood Funk Experience” – the funkiest Bollywood grooves from the 1960s & 70s.
Compiled by Jonny Trunk – the man behind Trunk Records, one of the world’s most celebrated soundtrack reissue labels – and
Joel Martin – half of respected Balearic-disco outfit Quiet Village – “Bollywood Funk Experience” presents some of the funkiest, quirkiest & grooviest tunes to have ever come out of Mumbai.
This is more than your average crash-bang-wallop Bollywood release though – Jonny & Joel have dug deep in their collections to show the breadth and depth of Bollywood music.
We have jazz from the rare-as-hens-teeth “Chic Chocolate EP” by Contessa, various tracks from possibly the most influential Bollywood music composer ever Mr R.D. Burman plus of course it wouldn’t be a Bollywood album if we didn’t thrown in a few ‘out-there’ covers so for good measure so we’ve included whacked out versions of “These Boots Are Made For Walking” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” from none other than the gentleman musician of Bollywood himself Balsara.
