Global Notes: The Merchants of Bollywood

Radio M host Tony Sarabia joins Jerome for another edition of Global Notes, Worldview's weekly look at what's happening in world music.

Loud, colorful, kitchy, humorous, romantic and dramatic. These words describe India's Bollywood. Now there's a theatrical show in town that takes advantage of India's marvelous film milieu. The Merchants of Bollywood was first staged in Australia and now two million people around the world have seen the international dance spectacle.
