Tropitaal Desi-Latino Soundclash “Welcome Anjali and The Kid back from India” party!

With your hosts and resident DJs Anjali and The Incredible Kid

plus a special 9-10 pm all-Reggaeton set from Daniela Karina

Daniela Karina channels underground club beats from around the world to share her vision of a polyrhythmic Pangaea with the dance floor. Daniela finds inspiration in emerging transcultural sounds and reinvented ancestral rhythms. Her sets draw from industrial club, dark kuduro, tribal guarachero, percussive tropical bass and mutant dembow. She brings the fringes of global dance music to the Pacific Northwest as a resident at Club Tropicana and has been featured at Portland’s Pan-American party Gran Ritmos.

At Tropitaal Daniela Karina will be providing an opening set of 100% reguetón, from the beaches of San Juan to Portland. From its roots in Jamaican riddims to Jersey club remixes, she’ll explore its epochs and influence. Expect heavy snare, deep kick and puro bailoteo.

 

Tropitaal features the hottest club sounds from India and Latin America scorching the dance floor in a battle to the dance.  (Reggaeton, Moombahton, Digital Cumbia, 3Ball Guarachero, Dembow, Dancehall, Chutney, Desiton, Bollywood & Bhangramuffin & more!)
