On the music end, there will be an array of great DJ’s featuring speical guest DJ VJ all the way from Edmonton, BC joining Non Stop Bhangra residents DJ Nix, Jimmy Love and Rav-E alongside live Dhol Drumming to spice up the floor. Beyond dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to sight and sound with visuals/lighting by VJ Amar, live painting by Marcus Murray while NSB photographer Odell Hussey captures the experience. The journey does not end there, the fall air will be dancing to the sound of live drums while filling your senses with complimentary indian sweets while the aroma of mehndi (henna) will be around with Ritual by Design to decorate the palms of the beautiful women ready to celebrate. In addition, there will be vending tables set up with beautiful indian treats for sale.
