This month’s Non Stop Bhangra installment moves to friday night so we can host one of our all time favorite Bhangra producers, Panjabi MC known worldwide as a pioneer in the global popularization of traditional Punjabi music merged with hip hop, R&B, & dance. PMC’s most famous record ‘Mundian To Bach Ke’ charted Top Ten in most countries around the world and was taken to another level when US hip-hop superstar Jay-Z, asked to collaborate on the record now titled “Beware of the Boys”. The song rode high on the US Billboard Hot 100 and gained huge support from UK radio stations nationwide. PMC has picked up numerous awards winning Best Dance Act at MTV Europe, UK Act of the Year at the Mobo’s and Best dance tracks in Germany, Italy, and Switzerland.
Although we have seen his profile grow in different territories in the entertainment industry, Panjabi MC has continued to provide official remixes for artist such as Cher Lloyd (Swagger Jagger) and Lady Gaga (Judas) while feeding raw Punjabi songs to the Asian music scene. Having played to audiences in almost every country in the world, Panjabi MC continues to entertain and inspire new generations of music for people of all ethnicities and cultures worldwide. We are so excited to have him back in the mix at Non Stop Bhangra.
To round up the night as always, Non Stop Bhangra crew will be in the house to share the usual colorful and vibrant energy with the dance lesson and beautiful dance performances by Dholrhythms Dance Company, DJ sets with NSB’s own DJ Jimmy Love, Rav-E, and DJ Nix alongside emcee Seti-X on that lyrical vibe with live dhol drumming all night. Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar and live painting by Marcus Murray, while NSB photographer Odell Hussey captures the magic.
So much more than a club night, Non Stop Bhangra has truly turned into one of a kind cultural experiences only found in the Bay Area featuring one of the most eclectic crowds seen on a dance floor. This is one not to be missed so spread the word and grab your tickets early.
