ANDAZ is the longest-running Bhangra & Bollywood dance party in the world, a transportive experience that has enraptured feverishly dancing Portland crowds for more than 16 years. “DJ Anjali & The Kid have been a staple of Portland, Oregon’s club scene for almost two decades, creating spaces for DJs and dancers to enjoy an international mélange of music ranging from bhangra to reggaeton.” – Remezcla 12/26/18

The Portland Tribune featured a story on the 15th-anniversary of ANDAZ

ANDAZ was featured in a 7-page spread in the May 2017 issue of GQ India

Anjali and The Incredible Kid won Best DJ in Willamette Week’s Best of Portland 2016 and 2017 Readers’ Poll. The Portland Mercury visited ANDAZ in 2016 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.”

Adam McCollom

He’s been the resident dholi at ANDAZ for over a year, hitting the road with Anjali & The Kid to play festivals, concerts-in-the-park & shaadis.

    DJ Anjali and The Kid are amazing artists! Their music sends a vivid statement of unity and integration. For many, hearing their diverse mixes and seeing the diverse crowds means a lot more than just a dance party.
