Musical prodigy Ben Walsh presents an exhilarating musical and cinematic celebration of a silent-era film goddess – the Australian-born Bollywood siren known as Fearless Nadia.
Her name said it all: Fearless Nadia (aka Perth-native Mary Evans) was one of the brightest lights of 1930s Bombay cinema. A former circus performer, she came to dominate India’s silver screens with her roguish charm, beauty and swashbuckling, death-defying stunts.
For the 100th anniversary of Indian cinema, composer and percussionist Ben Walsh (Tom Tom Crew) fronts a 12-strong coalition of Australian and Indian musicians as they perform an energetic, percussive score set to an action-packed montage of scenes from Diamond Queen, Fearless Nadia’s most famous film.
Thrill to the daredevil antics and propulsive, Indian-influenced tunes as Walsh’s orchestra pay tribute to the screen queen’s feats of daring.
This film features Hindi and Urdu with English subtitles.
