Bombay Rickey

 

BOMBAY RICKEY is a  super fun opera cabaret about Peruvian songbird Yma Sumac that I directed for the Prototype festival. Called “the future of music” (New York Music Daily), Bombay Rickey is a five-piece, Brooklyn-based band with a unique sound evocative of 1960s movie soundscapes. The group plays both covers and original music that borrow equally from the worlds of surf rock, cumbia, spaghetti Western, and Bollywood, balanced out with a “little” coloratura soprano.
