Mathangi Jagdish (Ma.Ja) is a playback singer, Coke Studio (India) artist, T.V personality and singer songwriter, with 450 films songs to her credit. She has worked with Oscar winning A R Rehman, Isai Gyani Illayaraja, Harris Jeyraj, Leslie Lewis and many more.

Ma.Ja brings to us some of her favourite BOLLYWOOD numbers, which she has hand picked, with songs ranging from the 1950’s to present day. In her unique style and with a stellar band line up, the melodies are reinterpreted, reharmonised and reinvented – with a dash of jazz, swing, funk and R&B, and a tadka of Indian classical music (both Carnatic and Hindustani). With all the razzmatazz of filmy music, the Band is replete with keyboards, bass and lead guitars, drums and a favourite with Hindi movie music style, a 2 piece horn section (trombone and trumpet)!
