The Bombay Royale are originators of a fresh new musical genre inspired by the soundtracks of vintage Bollywood films. The band is composed of some of the finest musicians from the renowned Melbourne music scene. Like the great music directors of vintage Indian cinema, the group composes its music drawing on a wide range of influences - from 60s rock and 70s funk and disco to the classical and folk music of India. Overlaid are the voices of protagonists The Tiger and The Mysterious Lady singing in Hindi, Bengali and English.
Originally conceived by The Skipper, The Bombay Royale have travelled far from their home in the suburban wilds of Melbourne and taken their unique sound to festival and club audiences all over the world where their performances have been met with astonishment and critical acclaim.
The Bombay Royale’s debut album You Me Bullets Love won a place in iTunes Best of 2012 and #1 on the iTunes World Music charts. In 2014, the band unleashed its trademark sound yet again and set off on an extraordinary musical safari on their album The Island of Dr Electrico. They have also released a number of single LPs and their music has been licensed in films, video games and TV shows.
The Bombay Royale is currently holed up in their studio HQ working on their third album, due for release in early 2017.
