NSB# 109 – Saturday, January 10th – Celebrating Lohri (Winter Solstice) at Public Works, SF

Non Stop Bhangra returns to its monthly ritual on January 10th. Come join the crew as we welcome 2015 with good music, friends, gratitude, happy vibes, and non stop dancing. A big thank you to the SF Bay Area community for rocking out with us in 2014.

Our January date falls near Lohri, an ausipicious occasion that celebrates the winter solstice with singing and dancing to the dhol beat while dressed in your brightest clothes.

As always the night will kick off with our ritual interactive and fun Bhangra dance lesson followed with vibrant dance performances by the beautiful Dholrhythms Dance Company. The journey will continue with a special live set (singing & dhol) by Ustad Lal Singh Bhatti known as the “Godfather of Dhol”. With over 40 years of mastering the art, he is the master/teacher of all the dhol players around. He is legendary in the world of Punjabi Folk music. It is always our pleasure to present his energy on the NSB stage, especially to kick off a new year.

On the decks this month, Non Stop Bhangra’s own DJ Jimmy Love and DJ Mistry will be joined by DJ Nix (Bol Punjab De) and special guest DJ Sandeep Kumar (LA) with live Dhol in the mix to spice things up. Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar.

If you have never made it out to a Non Stop Bhangra event, come kick off the new year with us and experience a one of a kind night featuring vibrant music, performances, live drumming, and one of the most eclectic crowds seen on a dance floor. So much more than just a club night, Non Stop Bhangra has truly turned into one of a kind cultural experience only found in the Bay Area.
