Who didn't have "Jai Ho" stuck in their head for weeks after watching "Slumdog Millionaire"? The upbeat rhythm, choral sections with shouting, and integration of English lyrics made for a catchy tune that America immediately embraced. On Saturday, October 27, the India Community Center will provide an opportunity for the public to experience Bollywood music and dance styles firsthand. At "Hindi Geetmala Bollywood Milestones," B. R. Chaya will perform Indian musical hits from the 1960's to 2012. The performance will be appropriate for adults and children of all ages who enjoy music and dance.
The event will take place at Penfield High School Auditorium, 25 High School Drive. Tickets cost $15-$25 and can be purchased at India Market, Spice Bazaar, Namaste, Amaya Restaurant, and at the door the day of the event.
