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, Dancehall & more…)

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 at The Viscount Dance Studio.
