The Indian film industry (Bollywood) is a huge phenomenon and music plays a leading role in this. Apart from the sheer joy of watching the films, the music from these films has an independent life of its own. No Indian party, wedding or other social occasion would be complete without the presence of Bollywood music to sing and dance to; sometimes recorded but often provided by a live, Bollywood Brass Band.
Part of a collection of thirty original compositions and arrangements entitled Ba-Da-Boom Brass.
Inspired by the heritage and culture of world and historical brass-related styles.
We hope this repertoire will prompt a growing inquisitiveness for brass players of all ages and styles and was created with a brass club or gathering in mind.
Set at a moderate / training band standard, these pieces can be played by a flexi group of mixed brass instruments plus assorted optional percussion.
A minimum of 4 brass players is necessary, but the maximum is limitless.
All 4 brass voices have occasional divisi passages; in these instances more texture and harmonic colour is added.
In the instance of using just four brass players, playing just the top part in each case will provide a cohesive performance.
