Botown are a chart-topping multicultural Soul band that reboot Bollywood classics with a shot of late ’60 Soul and Funk.
The music of Botown blends the genres of Bollywood with classic Soul and Funk from the 1960s and 1970s. It is a musical reimagining of the Bollywood genre and references artists such as Ray Charles, James Brown and Sly and the Family Stone together with Bollywood Music Directors such as RD Burman, Laxmikant Pyarelal and Kalyanji Anandji. As well as Soul music, the band also draws inspiration from Gospel, Funk, Jazz, Blues and Reggae. Along with these musical influences Botown also add their original music and compositions. The band creates a musical link between what Srivastav calls the 'working class music of India and America.'
