NON STOP BHANGRA--Diwali Celebration (Festival of Lights)
TIn its 13th year of monthly productions and voted one the best dance parties in San Francisco, Non Stop Bhangra returns to Southern Cali to celebrate Diwali-the festival of lights and one of the most celebrated holidays all over India. Diwali is known not only for the illumination of lights, but also as a time to reflect upon and celebrate the good fortune and relationships of the passing year while spreading positive energy for the coming year.
Join the Non Stop Bhangra crew as they take you on a colorful journey with happy vibes, beautifully dressed people, dance lesson, dance performances, live drums, dancing street procession, henna, lights, and more. Imagine a scene from a Bollywood movie smack in the middle of a thumping nightclub-swirling colors, rhythm of pounding feet, relentless energy, and brilliant beats.
The night kicks off with a dancing street procession meeting at the corner of E. 5th & S. Hewitt Streets just a couple of blocks from the venue. Featuring live drummers and dancers, the street procession will lead you dancing up to the venue. The festivities will continue with the ritual Bhangra dance lesson followed by beautiful dance performances by Dholrhythms Dance Co. On the music end Non Stop Bhangra's main residents DJ Jimmy Love and DJ Rav-E will be joined by Los Angeles's own DJ Sandeep Kumar alongside the one and only Malinder Tooray on live dhol.
When you need a little break from the dance floor, a beautiful outdoor beer garden awaits featuring drinks and a food truck with an eclectic menu. In addition, a henna artist will be on hand for those that want a little beauty painted on them to remember the night.
DRESS THEME (optional)
On Diwali, its a tradition to wear something new, bright, and vibrant. So join the crew and help support the vibe by dressing up in your favorite new desi indian style to celebrate this beautiful indian holiday!
