DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid just celebrated ten years of the longest-running Desi party West of the Hudson river. The excitement continues in the first parties of their eleventh year!

ANDAZ is such a Portland institution it is mentioned in the travel guides Best Places Portland 8th Edition and the Moon Handbook Portland; fitting recognition for a monthly dance party now in its eleventh year!

Anjali and The Incredible Kid first introduced Portland dance floors to the sounds of Bollywood and Bhangra in 2000, but it was not until July of 2002 that they founded a party dedicated exclusively to featuring the sounds of the desi diaspora. ANDAZ was an instant success and many thought the success was a fad. The party started as the Truth Hurts song “Addictive,” featuring a prominent sample of the Bollywood song “Thoda Resham Lagta Hai,” was making its way up the charts to a peak of #9. This was one year before a Jay-Z remix of Panjabi MC’s Bhangra track “Mundian To Bach Ke” reached the US Top 40.

This was five years before MIA covered the Bollywood song “Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Aaja,” and made use of South Indian soundtrack percussion players to create the dense rhythms of several of the tracks on her Kala album. This was seven years before Slumdog Millionaire won 8 Academy Awards and grossed $140 million dollars at the North American box office, with a soundtrack by the Bollywood composer A.R Rahman that one two Oscars, reached #4 on the U.S. Billboard 200, and topped the Billboard Top Electronic Albums twice, once knocking Lady Gaga out of the top spot after a twelve-week run. This was eight years before Bollywood movies were released in mainstream theaters throughout the Portland metro area, including such unlikely places as the Century Clackamas Town Center.

    Please pick my entry. My daughter and her partner Deb and my 21 year old son who is moving away to Canada would go with me. It is like a last shot reunion. I can’t think of a better more memorable experience.

    We all love Andaz

    I want to win because I’ve been practicing my lightbulb-turning hand dance for months and I need a good place to demonstrate my mad Bollywood skills.

    Aw, Carol’s entry trumps mine. I would love the tickets, but I would love it better if Carol won. Whatever happens, it’s going to be an awesome party!

    I would love to attend because DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid always put a smile on my face and I’ve been so broke lately, I could sure use a smile and some good music to cure my heart aches :)
