ABOUT NON STOP BHANGRA
Featured every month at Public Works in San Francisco, Non Stop Bhangra (NSB) is a unique experience that celebrates the beautiful and vibrant spirit of Bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music and dance.
Imagine a scene from a Bollywood movie smack in the middle of a thumping nightclub—swirling colors, the rhythm of pounding feet, and the relentless energy of brilliant beats-that’s Non Stop Bhangra.
Voted as one of the dance floor nights in San Francisco, Non Stop Bhangra is a non-stop party, featuring dance lessons with Dholrhythms Dance Company, followed by dance performances, live music sets, visuals, live painting, and DJs spinning an eclectic mix of Bhangra, Hip Hop, Reggae, and Electronica.
Non Stop Bhangra was founded in 2004 when Dj Jimmy Love teamed up with Dholrhythms founders Vicki Virk & Suman Raj, with the goal of bringing Bhangra to a wider audience. The first Non-Stop Bhangra night was hosted to celebrate the one year anniversary of Dholrhythms by providing a dance space for students of Dholrhythms Bhangra Classes. Since then, Non Stop Bhangra has made this traditional style a serious dance floor craze in San Francisco, drawing Bay Area’s most diverse crowds to join in the frenzy. NSB is a destination creating sold out nights and write-ups as one of the best dance floor nights in San Francisco.
In addition to the monthly event, Non Stop Bhangra continues to raise awareness and share this beautiful energy with the masses. NSB has performed at San Francisco’s Stern Grove Festival, Power to the Peaceful, Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, and shared the stage with artists such as Anoushka Shankar, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Ziggy Marley, Zap Mama, Karsh Kale, Delhi 2 Dublin, State of Bengal, B-Side Players, Bang Data, Locura, J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, DJ Rekha, Pacha Massive, Dengue Fever, and many more.
