The London Bollywood String Quartet - Bollywood String Quartet

The London Bollywood String Quartet is an exciting ensemble which draws its inspiration from India’s rich heritage of film and music and was formed in London by conservatoire-trained professional musicians.

The quartet began in 2010 as an offshoot of the already well respected Xenia String Quartet who saw that there was an increasing need for live music ensembles to offer repertoire that was diverse and cross-cultural and so it began with these Western-trained professional musicians specialising in Bollywood music.

They are regularly booked to play at both Indian weddings and fusion weddings due to their ability to easily adapt to your requirements. In addition to Bollywood music they can incorporate western classical and popular chart hits into their play list for your event.

They can be hired for weddings, corporate entertainment or private events operating mainly as a string quartet but is also available as a string trio or with the addition of trumpet and percussion. They know that every wedding and event is unique, which is why they offer you a variety of options, tailor make to meet your exact requirements, helping to make your event special.

All of our musicians have many years of experience in the function industry as well as playing with some of the country's finest orchestras. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra to name a few. You can therefore be assured of the highest possible standards.

The girls are happy to dress in traditional saris as well as Western clothes.

This string quartet also has a profile as a string quartet specialising in pop songs as well as classical repertoire: The Xenia String Quartet

They were brilliant! 5/5.

Sharon Budwal,

Amal and I just wanted to get in touch to say an extra special thank you for making our wedding such a wonderful occasion...We've heard from many of our guests how lovely the music was, and my Dad has said you played a song especially for him which was exceptional.Thank You for being such a wonderful addition to our day.

Amal and Neha, Hilton Syon Park

When Mehvish first suggested that we hire a string quartet who specialise in Bollywood music, I have to admit I thought: Will this be good? but as soon as Mehvish showed me your first YouTube video, I knew it would be amazing. Thank you so much for your performance at our wedding. We have lost count of the number of times guests have said to us, who were the musicians? They were so good! Your skill on the instruments is a joy to hear, your professionalism made organising so easy, your costumes caught everyone's eye, and all of this adds up to something hard to capture in words; you set the tone, the atmosphere at our wedding was joyous and happy and light, and that is in no small part to the pleasure you brought all of our guests and us as our big day began. Thank you for charging our wedding with a current of love and electricity from the get-go. We loved hearing your music, and we love all that you did for us.

Mehvish and Shane, Oxfordshire

We wanted to send a quick thank you to you and the rest of the quartet for your lovely music which provided the perfect soundtrack to our wedding day. You all looked amazing in your colourful sarees and the combination of popular uk tracks and Bollywood hits was an ideal fit for the Indian fusion theme. We really enjoyed the day, even if it did go by in a flash, and hope you did too. Thank you again and best wishes for the future.
