Get ready to do the time warp - Bollywood style! This April, New England’s hottest live Bollywood band, Din Check, will be celebrating Hindi cinema with a grand show titled “5 Decades of Bollywood: a live musical journey” that will be held at the historic Park Theatre in Cranston, RI.

Din Check -- which stands for “sound check” but also refers to the phonetic sound of the tabla -- formed in early 2010 by Jolly Bhatia, Sameer Bhambhani and Sam Rao. Over the last few years the group has expanded to include several guitarists, keyboardists, percussionists and even a brilliant violinist, Kira Taj. The team also boasts some wonderful young talents, with several team members under the age of 20, including Neil Bhambhani, Abhiram Rao and Ansh Jetly. Din Check has rapidly gained a name for itself, performing at festivals, restaurants, private community functions, expos, award shows and outdoor events all over the New England area.

“The synergy our team has is truly unique,” says Sameer Bhambhani, lead guitarist. “It is extremely difficult to get a team of musicians together for a full-scale band. There has to be the right balance of talent and dedication to pull it off. We are a very passionate team and when you hear us jamming you can literally feel the love each of us puts into the band.”

The 5 Decades of Bollywood show is a celebration of Hindi cinema and the songs that have captured our imagination from the 1960s to the 2000s. Featuring a diverse mix of genres, from melodious ballads to sizzling dance numbers, Din Check will have the audience tapping their feet, clapping and singing along and dancing in their seats.

“Each of these decades had their signatures, from the swinging 60s to the disco 80s or the hit item numbers of the millenium,” says Jolly Bhatia, lead singer and co-founder of Din Check. “We want to touch upon everyone’s fondest memories from these times. Whether your favorite is Shammi Kapoor, Zeenat Aman, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan or Bipasha Basu, every audience member will find something to connect to in this show.”

“It is a perfect opportunity to go back in time and savor  the best of Bollywood music from 5 different decades. A unique journey that all age groups are sure to enjoy”, says Gauri Chandna

The performance will be a multi-sensory experience, featuring exciting dance numbers, memorable video and slideshow presentations, and delicious food and drinks available for sale. It will surely be an exhilarating journey through time and a night to remember!

“5 Decades of Bollywood: A live musical journey” will be held on Saturday April 6, 2013 beginning at 5 pm. Tickets are $10, Kids under 12 will be admitted free of charge. Food will be available for purchase. Visit www.dincheck.com for more information.

Shaam-e-Burman Delights

On the clear wintry evening of March 9, filmi music lovers reveled in a concert of music featuring the legendary father-son duo of S.D. and R.D. Burman. The sold-out performance in the elegant ambience of the National Heritage Museum in Lexington proved a worthy tribute to the musical genius of the Burmans, whose output in the latter 20th century is now firmly a part of the canon of Indian film music.
