Inspired by vintage Bollywood. Made in Melbourne. 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.
