Despite rocking Portland dance floors for more than 13 years with Bollywood selections, it was not until 2008 that DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid founded a party devoted exclusively to Hindi film songs. Bollywood film music is the one music that unites all of South Asia, and increasingly, the world. Hindi-language film songs are the only Indian songs whose popularity crosses every state and national border in South Asia, and from Russia to Africa, South America to China, Bollywood’s reach and popularity continue to grow. Portlanders can now get their Bollywood fix through Netflix, or through the occasional new release screened at Century Clackamas Town Center. For those new to Bollywood, or lifetime filmi lovers, Filmistan is the one party where Portlanders can get an unadulterated taste of Anjali & The Kid’s favorite Bollywood dance floor Molotovs. With a Bollywood soundtrack collection that includes the results of many hours spent in Mumbai’s Chor Bazaar, and the purchase of some amazing private collections, who knows what might end up on the duo’s platters? From vintage Bollywood rock’n’roll, to Bollywood funk and disco, up to today’s pastiches of techno, hip-hop, and dubstep, it’s all in the mix at Filmistan.
