Description


Bollywood Gharana presents a unique fusion of Bollywood hits and Indian classical music. The group’s leader Abhijit Pohankar is a master craftsman who has mixed ancient Indian classical bandishes (compositions) with Bollywood retro and modern songs. The band creates an infectious groove, featuring traditional Indian instruments (such as the harmonium), Western pop-rock instruments (guitar, drums, keyboards), and Latin percussion (congas). The exciting mash-up of genres is its own stylish and crowd-pleasing sound.

Limited FREE tickets available to CUNY students, faculty, and staff. Email gcevents@gc.cuny.edu to reserve, and show CUNY ID at door.

Presented with the Indo-American Arts Council.
