“Botown have taken a bunch of Bollywood's best-loved anthems and given them the 'Shaft' treatment” DAILY EXPRESS
The band has seen huge success already with sell out shows across the UK, and a #1 hit on The Official Asian/BBC Asian Network Chart with their first single: ‘Roop Tera’. The debut album ‘Soul of Bollywood’ also hit the Amazon top 10 in both the Funk and World Music sales charts.
Botown was formed by lead singer and guitarist Ajay - a North London born and bred musician with #1 hit singles and album (‘Aaja Sajna’) in India. The band’s unique sound is a result of his passion for Bollywood and Soul music and his need to express the unifying factors of his various musical and cultural influences.
The band has played headline slots at prominent venues like The Jazz Cafe, Momo’s and Trafalgar Square. Along the way they have built up a large and loyal following and been credited with inventing a brand new genre of music.
