720 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland, Oregon

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 that will celebrate it’s 14th anniversary in July of 2016.


DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have spent fifteen years igniting dance floors with cutting edge music not limited by borders or language. They host the longest-running Bhangra and Bollywood party on the West Coast, co-founded the Pacific Northwest’s first Global Bass dance party and host two weekly radio shows on XRAY.FM and KBOO.FM. Few DJs can be said to have changed the sound of their city but that is exactly what DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have accomplished since they first introduced Portland, Oregon nightclub audiences to the many varied sounds of Global Bass at a raucous New Year’s Eve debut in 2000. They are most known for incinerating dance floors with the heavy dance floor artillery of South Asia, but the duo scour the globe for any hard-hitting music that combines local music traditions with window-rattling production. Anjali and The Kid regularly perform at festivals including five sets at the Sasquatch! Music Festival tenth anniversary where they headlined the dance tent opening night. They have performed at festivals such as Decibel, MusicfestNW, PICA’s TBA Festival, Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration, Beloved, Photosynthesis, Soul’d Out Music Festival, Portland State of Mind, Fairytale Music Festival, Kaleidoscope, Vancouver Queer Film Festival & Portland International Film Festival to name a few.

The duo travel to perform in cities such as New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco and Vancouver, BC to headline parties such as Basement Bhangra, iBomba, Bhangrateque, Ottomania and Non Stop Bhangra.

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. A series of residencies followed, beginning with a night at the legendary Blackbird, and 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 13 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: Balkan Beats, Reggaeton, Funk Carioca, 3Ball Guarachero, Digital Cumbia, Urban Desi, French and Arabic Hip-Hop, Rai N B, Reggada, Dembow, Dubstep, Kuduro, Merengue Urbano and a host of other local and diasporic future musics. ATLAS was a vital party in Portland nightlife and the Global Bass scene internationally for more than nine years and remains the longest-running night in Holocene’s history. In 2013 Anjali and The Kid initiated TROPITAAL: A Desi Latino Soundclash, their latest project.

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, Uproot Andy, 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, Rafi eL, J-Boogie, and Nickodemus from Turntables on the Hudson.

    I would love to go! I helped the girl who cracked her head after she passed-out at your last show at the Goodfoot. After an experience like that I’d love a new memory of your amazing music!!!
    My girlfriend turned me onto you, and I couldn’t be happier!!

    A dear friend of mine just moved to Portland, and she’s never been dancing. NEVER BEEN DANCING AT ALL. She’s shy, but I think that if she had a group of fun people dancing with her, she’d be able to find her Bollywood spirit. Give us 5 tickets, and we’ll use them to turn her into a Bollywood Dancing Queen.

    Anjali has been my go to bollywood party for so many years now. I look forward to rocking out at her events for many to come. I’d love the opportunity to show a few new people the genre and a few fancy bollywood moves.

    I would love to go to this show. I became a fan of Bollywood movies and the music when I was living up in Canada. Since moving back to Oregon in the past 2 months I have been trying to find more venues that have Bollywood shows and music. Which btw beyond BEAUTIFUL! I’d like to take a bunch of my friends to the show so they could experience and see why I love it so much.
