Botown are a chart-topping multicultural Soul band that reboot Bollywood classics with a shot of late ’60 Soul and Funk. It’s an exciting culture-clash musical experience that takes you on a musical trip from Memphis to Mumbai. Imagine a legendary ‘60’s Soul band playing Bollywood music – that’s Botown
Their single ‘Roop Tera’ went #1 on the BBC AN Official Asian Download Chart last year. And their debut album entered the Top 10 in the Amazon Funk charts. Other tracks have hit top 10 in the iTunes World Music charts. Tracks from their debut album are often heard on the BBC Soap EastEnders.
Botown live is a must see ‘adrenaline rush experience’ and has led the way in entering venues previously closed to Asian acts. The band have performed sell-out shows at prestigious venues like London’s legendary Jazz Cafe and typically non-Asian venues like the Granville Theatre in the seaside town of Ramsgate and now Botown are heading to NAC
