A Bhangra/Bollywood/Desi Bass Dance Party

Anjali and The Incredible Kid won Best DJ in Willamette Week’s Best of Portland 2016 Readers’ Poll and the Portland Mercury visited ANDAZ a few months ago and said, “last month’s was WILD. When I arrived around midnight, the Analog Theater’s upstairs was jam-packed for one of Portland’s danciest dance parties.”

ANDAZ is the West Coast’s longest-running Bhangra & Bollywood dance party, a transportive experience that has enraptured feverishly dancing Portland crowds for more than 14 years. ANDAZ occurs the last Saturday of every month at the Analog Theater.
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 celebrated its 14th anniversary in July.


DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have spent more than 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, What The Festival, 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.

    I’ve taken DJ Anjali’s Bhangra + Bollywood dance classes throughout this year, and she is always overflowing with joy and enthusiasm! She is everything we need in this post-election nightmare. Hooray for DJ Anjali!

    As my husband and I have no family here in Portland we are seeking a fabulous and fun Thanksgiving weekend. Attending the Andaz Dance Party would be the ultimate way for us to celebrate the holiday and feel a little more connected to the community here by dancing away to some funky Bollywood and Bhangra tunes.

    DJ Anjali is the best. Plus I would love to have some Bhangra to dance to, it is time to bring Bhangra dancing back into my life.

  18. Velvet November 23, 2016 at 12:15 am #

    Dancing is my only therapy right now.
    Soothes the soul
    Eases the mind
    So many reasons we all need the dance.

    Danced the night away to the eclectic grooves of Andaz many times, taking my lady and having a great night again this Saturday!
