Get into the carnival spirit with Chutney, a specially-formed strolling street band. Drawing on “Chutney” music, the popular musical style of the Indian community in Trinidad, blending influences from Asia and the Caribbean, their repertoire cooks up a spicy mix of guitars, horns and percussion.
A virtuosic instrumentalist, highly-skilled improviser and composer, Kuljit Bhamra has written hit songs, film scores and West End musicals. He is also a pioneer of the worldwide Bhangra phenomenon. Combining traditional Indian rhythms, with western instruments and multi-track recording techniques, he has transformed Punjabi music into a new dance floor sound.
