Theatre III – Celebrate Bandra + Jazz

Global views


While I was off gallivanting around Europe, my partner was busy with myriad of activities… including organising the theatre section of Celebrate Bandra.

While there is a whole host of fabulous music, dance, theatre and more to see and do, I’m naturally completely biased and planned my flight in time to return to see his performance in “Bombay JAZZ”.

Bombay JAZZ is a semi-autobiographical musical play about Goan and Anglo-Indian musicians who brought Jazz influences to Hindi film music between the 1950s – 1970s.

It is the story of these unsung musicians, many who died in penury yet whose lives were rich with music, experience and a life of jazz!

It is also a story of the relationship between a cranky disillusioned curmudgeon and his talented protegé.

So kudos all around for the fab team who pulled off a brilliant show last night at HUL Park, Bandra.

While it is too late for Mumbaikars to catch the show this time, have little doubt there will be other opportunities!
