bollywood sound & image

3rd I presents the first in a three-part series of lectures focused on the sound and music of Bollywood through the decades. Music videos and clips from Bollywood films will be projected on the big screen, and then supplemented with analysis, historical/political insights, and performance demonstrations by Robin Sukhadia. Learn about Bollywood's famed film composers, playback singers, arrangers, and steeped musical history. We promise gregarious song and dance, whimsical musical arrangements, gaudy colors, and extremely melodramatic love scenes…all of this, of course, without any kissing on screen. Bring the kids!
