About Nisha Odedra
Born in the UK to East African Gujarati parents, as a child Nisha was drawn into the music of her parents’ and grandparents’ generation. Through early memories of listening to her parents’s cassettes on long car journeys, she soon associated Bollywood music with happy family times and a gateway into her parent’s past and culture.
Nisha travels regularly to India, particularly Mumbai and Kolkata, to add to her ever growing collection of Bollywood vinyl, as well as to breath in the sites and sounds to drift back to the glory days of Hindi cinema.
Bollywood Gold is a weekly journey down memory lane, introducing audiences to the culture and glamour of old Bombay that easily rivalled Hollywood in glitz, romance and intrigue, presented by a true devotee.
Nisha is a London-based radio presenter and visual artist.
