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.

    I went to this last month for the first time and had so much fun! This month I’m broke though, so winning tickets would be awesome!

    Because I’m trying to take a group of friends to show them what DJ Anjali is all about and it’d be a better sell if I can take them for free!

    been living in portland for seven years, and still have yet to cross this off my “real portlander” checklist. help me out!

    I moved to PDX in May and immediately fell in love with DJ Anjali’s fierce sound. Now my sister and her bf moved up here from the Bay last week and I’d love to take them to Andaz and show them how Portland does Bhangra. We’re a whole family of Bollywood lovers and it’d be a wonderful way to welcome them to PDX.
