Non Stop Bhangra #121–“Hip-Hop Meets Bhangra” is Back!!!

One of our favorite themes in 2015 was Bay Area Hip Hop Meets Non Stop Bhangra and we are bringing it back this year with the first one of the year in Feb. If you love Hip Hop and Bhangra and missed this mash up last year, come get your groove on. It’s a bangin night of Laid back West Coast Hip-Hop laced with a heavy dose of Bhangra & Dhol beats, keeping heads bobbing and shoulders bouncing on the dance floor!

As Always, the night will kick off with the ritual Bhangra dance lesson followed with vibrant dance performances by the beautiful Dholrhythms Dance Company. The Flow will continue with NSB’s fam and collective, Seti X and Deuce Eclipse (Bang Data) coming together as always to spit some lyrical fire. Also gracing the stage this month will be one of our favorite local hip hop divas Aima The Dreamer who’s known for her beautiful flow and positive vibes. Its all about the Bay this month!!!

Non Stop Bhangra’s residents DJ Jimmy Love, Rav-E will be on the 1’s and 2’s and joined by special guests, DJ Delrokz, one of Bay Area’s most versatile selectors who has been diggin in the crates, flipping the breaks, and heating up the dance floor since 2003 alongside one of our long time fam favorites Sandeep Kumar (LA) who’s been spinning at NSB throughout our 11 year run and always brings bangin dance floor vibes. NSB’s own Pavit Deol will be spicing up the night with live dhol (drumming) all night! Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar, live painting by Marcus Murray, and photography by Odell Hussey!

If you have never made it out to Non Stop Bhangra event, it’s one of a kind night featuring vibrant music, performances, live music, drumming, and one of the most eclectic crowds seen on a dance floor.

Dholrhythms Dance Company Celebrates 10 Years

Co-founders and headliners of Non Stop Bhangra, Dholrhythms Dance Company celebrates a milestone of 10 years of teaching and performing in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first Non Stop Bhangra event was hosted to celebrate Dholrhythms 1 year anniversary. Since its inception, Dholrhythms has grown into a boundless and unique platform for people of diverse backgrounds to come together, express themselves, and dance in a non-competitive and positive environment.

In Celebration of this milestone, Non Stop Bhangra is mixing up the vibes this month to celebrate the SF Bay Area artistic community that Dholrhythms has been a part of for a decade. The night will bring together some of Dholrhythms favorite local creatives and collaborators to create a mashup of vibrant musical flavors from Cumbia, Reggae, to Hip-Hop mixed with the energy of Bhangra.

The night begins with the “Baraat Mob” an instrumental jamm session with live horns, and dhols drums to get people warmed up leading into an interactive, fun, jam packed Bhangra dance lesson, followed by beautiful dance performances by Dholrhythms Dance Co.

The night will continue with special guests Aima The Dreamer and Bang Data performing live for the first time at NSB at Public Works. J. Boogie(OM Records), who has been a part of Dholrhythms journey from the beginning is going to mix it up aon the turntables alongside NSB residents DJ Jimmy Love and Rav-E with Pavit & Mehul rocking the dhol drums. Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar.

Aima The Dreamer has been rockin’ crowds for years as a vocalist and MC with groups such as J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, The Mamaz, Goddess Alchemy Project and Jazz Mafia’s Brass, Bows and Beats Hip-Hop Symphony. Bang Data is formed by Bay Area’s MC Deuce Eclipse on lead vocals, who’s well known by hip-hop fans as an accompanying voice to the legendary Zion I and musician/producer Juan Manuel Caipo who helped propel the latin alternative music scene in the Bay Area early on in his career. Mixing Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop & Latin beats and infusing them with a soulful bilingual (English/Spanish) delivery by Deuce Eclipse, Bang Data has created a sound that is unmistakably theirs. The group has performed with acts such as Calle 13, Ozomatli, Zion I.  Their first single Bang Data from from their full length ‘La Sopa’ was featured on the hit AMC TV Drama Breaking Bad Episode “Salud”.

This is going to one of a kind cultural mashup creating an experience only found in the Bay Area.

For those that still don’t know what NSB is:
Imagine a scene from a Bollywood movie smack in the middle of a thumping nightclub—swirling colors, the rhythm of pounding feet, and the relentless energy of brilliant beats-that’s Non Stop Bhangra.
