ANDAZ is Portland’s original Bhangra & Bollywood dance party, a transportive experience that has enraptured feverishly dancing crowds for nearly 12 years. (12th Anniversary in July!)

ANDAZ is not only the longest-running Desi party on the West Coast, it is the longest-running Desi party West of the Hudson river.

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 now it’s twelfth year.


DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid introduced Portland, Oregon nightclub audiences to the sounds of Bhangra, Bollywood and Global Bass around the turn of the millennium. They host one of the city’s longest-running dance parties and regularly play to festival crowds throughout the Pacific Northwest including a headline performance at the Sasquatch! Music Festival dance stage.

DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have spent more than a decade igniting dance floors with cutting edge music not limited by borders or language. They are most known for incinerating dance floors with the South Asian sounds of Bhangra and Bollywood, but the duo scour the globe for any hard-hitting music that combines local music traditions with window-rattling production. Anjali and The Kid host a cult radio show on KBOO community radio where they have been regular hosts since 2006, and they just began a new radio show on XRAY.FM

Anjali and The Kid performed five sets at the Sasquatch! Music Festival tenth anniversary including headlining the dance tent opening night. They have performed at festivals such as Decibel, MusicfestNW, Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration, Beloved, Photosynthesis, Fairytale and Kaleidoscope, and the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. The duo travel to perform in cities such as NYC, SF and Vancouver, BC and headline long-running parties such as Basement Bhangra, Nonstop Bhangra and High Society.

Together and separately they have supported artists as diverse as Digable Planets, Balkan Beat Box, Major Lazer, Skrillex, A Tribe Called Red, DJ Spooky, Tigerstyle, Boban i Marco Markovic Orkestar, Delhi 2 Dublin, Sleigh Bells, Glitch Mob, State of Bengal, MSTRKRFT, Karsh Kale, DJ Rekha, CeU, Antibalas, Dengue Fever, Blockhead, Soulico, The Decemberists, Rupa & the April Fishes, Gold Panda, DJ Marcelinho Da Lua, Saini Surinder, Washed Out, Toy Selectah, Pink Martini, Quantic, Opiuo, Bonobo, Extra Golden, Maga Bo, Poirier, Plastician, Flying Lotus, Ming & FS, Joro-Boro, Kultur Shock, Ghostland Observatory, J-Boogie, and Nickodemus from Turntables on the Hudson.

After making a name for themselves in their hometown’s raucous house party circuit, DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid introduced the Portland, Oregon nightclub scene to the sounds of Bhangra, Bollywood and Global Bass on New Year’s Eve 2000. After a series of residencies, beginning with a six-month residency at the legendary Blackbird, the duo began hosting their ANDAZ dance parties in July of 2002. The party’s focus on hardcore Panjabi Bhangra and the latest electronic confections from the Bollywood film industry continue to pack the dance floor after eleven years. While ANDAZ was still in the bloom of youth, Anjali and The Kid founded the revolutionary dance night ATLAS (with co-host/DJ E3) at Holocene in November of 2003 to introduce Portland to Global Bass sounds such as: Urban Desi, Rai N B, Reggada, Dembow, Dubstep, Balkan Beats, Funk Carioca, Kuduro, Merengue Urbano, Reggaeton, 3Ball Guarachero, Cumbia Digital and a host of other local and diasporic future musics. ATLAS finally ended in March of 2013 after more than nine years making it the longest-running night in the club’s history. In 2013 Anjali and The Kid initiated Tropitaal: A Desi Latino Soundclash party, their latest project.
