Funk from Bollywood Action Films 1977-84
The Bombay Connection showcases the sound of the Indian action film of the late '70 s and early '80 s. Under the influence of films like Shaft and Dirty Harry a new kind of action film came into being in 1970 s India. To match the loud fights and fast chases, Indian composers developed a exciting brand of Bollywood funk. Wah-wah guitars, congas and funky Moogs were effortlessly blended with tablas, dhols and Indian melody lines. This album compiles 12 of the best, incredibly original Bollywood Funk grooves, painting scenes of frantic chases through back streets in Bombay, secret plots conceived in subterranean headquarters by fake-moustache villains and sexy seductive dances by female spies. The six panel digipak comes with a colorful 32 page booklet containing well researched info and a wealth of pictures. Bombay Connection. 2007.
