Bombay Dub Orchestra is the East-West fusion project founded by composer/producers Garry Hughes and Andrew T. Mackay. Since the release of their self-titled debut, the name Bombay Dub Orchestra has built quite a reputation. From main-stage performances at the Big Chill festival and Djing across the globe, scoring feature films to remixing such world-renowned artists as Bob Marley, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Bebel Gilberto, fans and critics were eagerly awaiting their next album, ‘3 Cities‘, released recently by Six Degrees Records on 20 April.
For ‘3 Cities‘ both Hughes and Mackay traveled to Mumbai and Chennai to record with the cities’ premier musicians and vocalists before returning to London to mix the album. (In Chennai they recorded at the studios of revered composer and musician A.R. Rahman and also worked with some of his musicians. The project was finished in the UK at the famous Rockfield Studios.) ‘3 Cities’ is where their cinematic soundscapes meet Indian Classical and electronica featuring a huge cast of over 75 musicians.
