Taj Mahal Foxtrot
In 1935, a violinist from Minnesota named Leon Abbey brought the first 'all negro'jazz band to Bombay, leaving behind a legacy that would last three decades. In a decade, swing would find its way to the streets of India as it influenced Hindi film music - the very soundtrack of Indian life. The optimism of jazz became an important element in the tunes that echoed the hopes of newly independent India.
