Global Bollywood is a tribute to the rich musical landscape of Indian film music and the music composers who defined what is now celebrated as Bollywood music. Featuring a multicultural cast of dancers and musicians, the show displays a tapestry of global and eclectic influences of Indian popular music from the 1950s until now: jazz inspired by Benny Goodwin, to the 60s sound of the Beatles, to Disco and beyond. Global Bollywood is directed by choreographer and singer Bageshree Vaze, an MTV India 'rising star.'

Bageshree Vaze is an Indo-Canadian dance artist, musician and writer. She is Artistic Director of Pratibha Arts, an organization that enhances the cultural fabric of Ontario through dance and music productions that often have influences from South Asian cultures. Bageshree is an award-winning Kathak dance artist (winner of the 2010 K.M. Hunter Award in Dance) and as a vocalist she has 5 CDs/albums to her credit. In 2004 she was named an MTV India 'Ubbarta sitara' (rising star) and her work has been presented in major festivals around the world including the Canada Dance Festival. In 2022 Bageshree was the inaugural Dance Collection Danse Artist Researcher-in-Residence and received the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Sound Composition (Dance Division).
