A night of Bollywood Film & Music at the Admiral
Who is Manooghi Hi? "...Suffice to say you've never heard anything like Manooghi Hi. Maybe because, to the best of my knowledge, their sound has never before been attempted. To oversimplify, it's like this: panoramic rock 'n' roll fronted by a petite, beautiful Indian woman scat singing in Hindi. The cross-pollination is dizzying East and West, ancient and modern, pop and classical, ecstatic spiritualism and headbanging rock. The potential for Rusted Root-style world groove dilettantism arises and is crushed by the frontwoman's chops."
-Jonathan Zwickel, the Seattle Times March 2009.
Also on the bill that evening - the award-winning film, Rock On is the story of 4 boys who put together the greatest band their country had ever seen, but never quite make it.
Ten years go by and fate conspires to bring them together again and set them on a journey back to where they left off... a soul-searching pilgrimage into their past.
Just like an old Indian saying, "if one dies without fulfilling a cherished dream he will be re born to have another shot at it".
