Olli and the Bollywood Orchestra

Olli and the Bollywood Orchestra

Olli and the Bollywood Orchestra do not belong to the generation who, guided by the music of Ravi Shankar, used to hitch-hike all the way to India on a soul-searching quest in some remote ashram. Avoiding the traps of exotic mimicry they manage to find a tone and a style of their own.

Without giving in to the temptation of creating a simple collage of his influences, Olli goes his own, inventive way, creating new and original musical arrangements where the bass, electric guitars and keyboards mingle with traditional Indian strings and percussion. Olli fuses them into a whole new sound experience, mixing inspirations from the ‘cinema Massala’ (Indian spice-mix), to the Hindi Pop movement, with impulses derived from Hip-Hop, Dub and Rock.

Olli will invite his friend Bobby Panesar as a special guest to perform with the band on stage and share to this explosive musical journey.
