The sound of Disco rose out of Philadelphia in the '70's before being nurtured in New York and later rising to the top of the pops. By 1979 it made its way to India, where it was blended with sitars, tablas and huge orchestras in a wildly inventive, and often boldly surreal, fusion of Purab aur Pachhim (East and West). When a film producer told Bollywood composer Bappi Lahiri, "I want to have music like 'Saturday Night Fever'", Bombay Disco was born. Soon nearly every South Asian film, it seemed, had a disco track blaring from cinema screens.
