North America’s greatest South Asian DJ, Jay Dabhi is set to present a tasteful night of Bollywood and Bhangra Music, House Edition on June 16th at 8 p.m. at the one and only, Conga Room in LA Live.

Dabhi was introduced to his first set of turntables at the age of 12, he impressed his sister’s friends with his ability to mix and match the tempos of different records at such a young age.

“I was so excited to use the turntables,” recalls Jay, “that I would cut school to take a train and two buses to my friend’s house where I could practice mixing.”

This turn table expert merged out of the New York circuit in the early 1990’s and has proved to be one of the most recognized South Asian club DJs in North America. After spinning in Canada, South Africa and the UK, Dabhi is steps foot in L.A. to give the L.A. night life something to dance about.

With Nitesh D. and Rinku Show as hosts, this night is ought to be one of the hottest South Asian parties this summer.

Dhabi will be mixing Bollywood and Bhangra music at the Conga Room but, it doesn’t stop there. Specializing in house music, he will place his own twist and flavor into his mixes and provide a rather diverse style of turntablism by mashing up Bollywood, Bhangra and house music all night.
