What happens when the high-octane sounds of Bollywood meet the soulful beats of yesteryear? Well you get Botown of course.

For one night only the likes of Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin will mix with the melodies of Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle when band Botown come to town.

Songs such as Roop Tera Mastana and Om Shanti Om will get a 1960s style funk makeover as Memphis meets Mumbai at the Rose Theatre.

A saxophone, a trumpet and drums will make for a lively night of music produced by Global Arts Kingston as part of the Festival of Stories at the theatre.

Wendy Smithers, from Kingston Global Arts, says: “People should come along because they are going to experience something they have never experienced before.

“They are going to be dancing in their seats. It is a great introduction to Bollywood.”

Botown, Rose Theatre; 24-26 High Street, Kingston; Saturday, June 28, 7.30pm; 020 8174 0090, rosetheatrekingston.org.
