NY’s Indian Invasion

Broadway’s Bombay Dreams is only the latest piece of Indian culture to hit New York. “Jazz musicians have been absorbing ideas and collaborating with Indian musicians at least since the 1960’s. Hip-hop has latched on to Indian rhythms. In New York’s clubs, the sounds of Bollywood and other South Asian fusions have been drawing crowds for years: some to dance, some to listen, some to mingle and network.”
