Take the sultry vibe of the Latin American Tropics, combine with the rhythm of India (“Taal”) and you get Tropitaal, Holocene’s newest dance night – a Desi/Latino Soundclash where the hottest club sounds from India and Latin America go head to head in an all-night dance-off of epic proportions. Resident DJs Anjali & The Incredible Kid combine their deep passions and deep crates along with guest DJs and performers from across the spectrum of Latin, Caribbean and Indian vibes.
Joro-Boro was born in Bulgaria.
He plays and promotes etnoteck, glitch-folk and post-national bass – the dirty local side of globalization force-fed back into a party without borders detonating the conglomerated mono-culture. Joro-Boro hosted MoGlo (Modern Global) on Radio New York 91.5FM, has toured with Balkan Beat Box, and has performed with artists ranging from Bassnectar to Tinariwen. He established himself over seven years as the resident DJ in the Bulgarian Bar (Mehanata) in New York City, a residency to which he has recently returned.
Joro-Boro is not an artist / charlatan / mythologist. Joro De Boro could be just the opposite.
DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid
DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid have played a transformative role in the Portland, Oregon club scene for over a decade, presiding over two of Portland’s longest-running and most successful dance parties, as well as hosting a cult radio show on KBOO community radio. They are most known for incinerating dance floors with the South Asian sounds of Bhangra and Bollywood, but the duo scours the globe for any hard-hitting music that combines local musical traditions with window-rattling production.
