Take the sultry vibe of the Latin American Tropics, combine with the
rhythm of India (“Taal”) and stir into Tropitaal, a Desi/Latino
Soundclash where the hottest club sounds from India and Latin America
go head to head in an all-night dance-off of epic proportions.
Resident DJs Anjali & The Incredible Kid combine their deep passions
and deep crates from across the spectrum of Latin, Indian and
Caribbean vibes. (We are not talking Salsa, but Reggaeton, Moombahton,
Digital Cumbia, 3Ball Guarachero, Dembow and more.)
Bollywood Horror XIV Costume Dance Party
with DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid
Saturday, October 29th, 2016
The longest-running Bollywood Halloween party in the world is a Portland original, a wild dance party celebrating fourteen years of raucous costumed merriment hosted by DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid. The centerpiece of every Bollywood Horror is the costume contest hosted by Anjali with fabulous prizes from rad local businesses for the best costumes. Featuring only the wickedest beats from the subcontinent: cower at the thundering dhols, shiver at the piercing wails of Bollywood divas.
The night features specially-commissioned psychedelic Bollywood Horror visuals remixed by Micah Schmelzer and Deai from Anjali and The Kid’s vault of South Asian horror.
