In the Ashanti Strings Bollywood Cabaret Show the girls perform their attention-grabbing choreographed repertoire of all-time favourites such as Jai Ho, Kabhi Kabhi, Humko Humise Chura Lo and Joote Dedo Paise Lelo.
As an option for a music and dance spectacular they can be accompanied by professional dancers and choreographer for that extra wow factor. Supported by fully orchestrated backing tracks, the performance is a high energy, dynamic fusion of Western and Bollywood music.
Performing as either an electric strings duo or a music and dance trio, the show is tailored to your needs and we will discuss the detailed format with you beforehand, including the level of audience involvement. Do you have an aspiring 'Slumdog Millionaire' movie star in your organisation who fancies himself as a Jai Ho dancer? Then let us know in advance and we will surprise him by asking him to join us on stage!
A popular format for the Bollywood show is to start with up to one hour of light popular classical music as background to a drinks reception or during dinner. This is followed by a dramatic change in both costume and tempo which immediately gets the audience's attention and the main high energy performance begins. The length of the main show is agreed with the client in advance but is typically 20-30 minutes.
Alternatively, the duo can play up to two 45-minute sets of upbeat Bollywood and classical-pop crossover music. This provides the perfect background accompaniment to a drinks reception.
Ashanti Strings can also provide an acoustic string quartet who can perform background music for up to two hours – ideal for both Western and Asian weddings and receptions.
