English Play (75 mins)
An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with Stagesmith Productions
A semi-autobiographical musical play about Goan and Anglo Indian musicians who brought jazz influences into Hindi film music between the 1950s and 1970s. There’s jazz, there’s rock‘n’roll; there’s sax, there’s violins; there’s egos and alcoholism; there’s love, passion and bounced cheques. And there are some of the biggest names in popular culture from C. Ramachandra and Laxmikant-Pyarelal to Shankar Jaikishan and R. D. Burman.
