ANDAZ is Portland’s original Bhangra & Bollywood dance party, a transportive experience that has enraptured feverishly dancing crowds for more than eleven years.

ANDAZ is such a Portland institution it is mentioned in the travel guides Best Places Portland and the Moon Handbook Portland; fitting recognition for a monthly dance party celebrating eleven revolutionary years.


Gopika and Nadaka sing sacred chants and traditional ragas, combined with subtle music and delicate sounds designed to create a meditative experience.

Nadaka was born in Quebec but lived in India for most of his life. His love and passion for Indian culture led him to study its music, learn different Indian instruments and styles. He conceived and crafted a unique instrument of his own; a guitar specially designed to play the ragas and subtle tones of Indian music which he refers to as the “Geet-Taar” (singing strings). Nadaka has toured with many acclaimed Indian musicians and has a number of successful albums to his credit. Inspired by Indian Ragas and rhythms, he carries us through his unique musical world that is both modern and rich in tradition.

Gopika was born in Mumbai, and grew up in an artistic environment mingling with many of India’s great artists and musicians. Singer, painter, photographer, she progressively discovered a spiritual dimension within that led her to the Sri Aurobindo ashram and Auroville. She studied Sanskrit mantras in their original ancient form at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai. Her voice carries a refined and soulful quality that reflects her seeking spirit. She teaches Vedic chanting, performs and offers regular workshops in India and other countries. She is currently pursuing a graduate program in Applied Craft & Design at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland.

    I NEVER go out on NYE because nothing ever lives up to the New Year’s Eve in my imagination….except this. I would totally get off my lame ass backside to venture out because I know, I know ! That on the other side of my effort will be the Bollywood glory of this new year. Send this old mom to dance land.

    Oh, yes, please! Dancing to Anjali and the Kid on New Year’s (or Halloween or your birthday or just because!) is the best! Never seen them at this venue and I’m sure it will knock my socks off!

    Saw DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid a few years ago by chance at Sasquatch and could not get enough! We no longer live in Portland but are visiting for this New Years Eve! It would be “incredible” to get tickets to see this amazing show.
