A semi – autobiographical musical play about Goan and Anglo Indian musicians who brought Jazz influences into Hindi Film music between the 50s and 70s.

There’s jazz, there’s rock n roll.

There’s sax, there’s violins.

There’s Mumbai, Bombay, India.

There’s egos and alcoholism

There’s love, passion, bounced cheques.

There’s show-biz, razzmatazz.

And some of the biggest names in popular culture from C Ramachander to Laxmikant Pyarelal to Shankar Jaikishen to RD Burman.
