Tropitaal A Desi-Latino Soundclash

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, Latin Trap, Dembow and more.

When Anjali and The Kid started Tropitaal five years ago many people were confused, how do South Asian and Latin club music go together? Now J. Balvin tops the international charts with “Mi Gente” sampling a Bangladeshi film song, and on this year’s trip to India Anjali and The Kid heard multiple reggaeton songs on Mumbai pop radio and a dembow mix being played in a Punjabi mall food court. The future Tropitaal predicted has finally arrived.

Anjali has been studying dance since childhood, starting with her Indian Mum (who performed Kathak in Bombay as a member of the Gopi Krishna‘s troupe.) Anjali herself has studied & performed both Kathak (North Indian Classical) & Bharata Natyam (South Indian Classical) and draws from these traditions as well as Jazz, Hip Hop & South Asian Folk to teach her version of Bollywood. Check The Viscount Dance Studio for schedule.
