This year our May Non Stop Bhangra falls on Carnaval weekend here in San Francisco, so we are adding our own celebration by mixing the sounds of Latin America with India under one roof. We’ll be creating a unique flavor by bringing together some of our favorite Bay Area artists featuring vocalists, conga drummers, dancing street procession plus more alongside the usual Non Stop Bhangra energy for one of a kind flip to the carnaval madness.
This month, we are kick starting the night with our own carnaval style street procession (Baraat Mob) on 14th & Valencia with live drums, dancers, and colorful happy vibes dancing our way to Public Works. As always, the night will feature our ritual Bhangra dance lesson followed with vibrant dance performances by the beautiful Dholrhythms Dance Company. The Flow will continue with a special live set featuring members of some of our favorite local groups including La Gente, Loco Bloco, Soltron, Bang Data, plus Emcee’s Raw-G and SetiX all coming togehter to create one of a kind dancing flavor.
On the decks this month, Non Stop Bhangra’s own DJ Jimmy Love will be joined by one of our favorites DJ Santero bringing Bhangra Carnaval Vibes into the mix. The Bhangra portion of the night will be filled with DJ Wicked and Ajit Singh closing out the night with the heavy dose of old skool and new Bhangra tunes to keep them shoulders bouncing alongside live dhol drums in the mix all night long. Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar, Henna Art by Ritual by Design, and live painting by Marcus Murray!
If you have never made it out to Non Stop Bhangra event, it’s one of the most unique nights you’ll ever attend featuring vibrant music, performances, live music, drumming, and one of the most eclectic crowds seen on a dance floor. So much more than just a club night, Non Stop Bhangra has truly turned into one of a kind cultural experience only found in the
San Francisco Bay Area.
Support the vibe and join the crew by adorning your favorite and most festive Carnaval style and come add your own colorful flair to the beautiful energy!
