CureSonia.Org Bone Marrow Drive and Concert in SF



Vaishali Rana put together this event in two weeks for CureSonia.org, she brought in Urban Desi artists like Mandeep Sethi, Pree Mayall, Rav E and Mixman Shawn. In the back, AADP Workers (Debbie and the new South Asian coordinator, Vicky) were busy with donor registrations. They easily rounded up 70 new donors! We even got a couple of shots of Mixman, Pree and Diamond Lane Records manager AJ supporting the cause and becoming donors. This was a successful event for CureSonia.org and we can’t wait for the next one! Music is the way to bring people together!

Conscientious Hip-Hop with South Asian Voices

Just as Talib Kweli and Mos Def joined to combine Hip-Hop and education awareness among the African American community, these young South Asian artists are doing the same for theirs. I feel that these young Sikh rappers are an excellent example of hip-hop as current politics, history, inventive poetry and wordplay, critically reflective insight, and musically captivating activism. These artists are beginning a strong underground movement for social awareness that will exist not only among the young Sikh community, but for the South Asian community as a whole.

Kudos and peace to these brothers for enlightening many youthful souls… with each show at a time.

One of my favorite monthly party bashes!!! — Petz

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. 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.

This month the whole NSB crew is in the house and looking forward to making you all dance. As always, the night begins with the ritual dance lesson with the beautiful Dholrhythms Dance Company, followed by NSB live set featuring dance performances mixed in with vocals by NSB MC’s Mandeep Sethi and Mista Chatman alongside Rav-E on dhol. This month NSB also welcomes special guest Dj Erick Santero hailing from Oakland sharing some east bay love & bringing his funky latin bhangra flavor to the night alongside residents Dj’s Jimmy Love, and Rav-E who will be sharing their favorite NSB Bhangra tunes as always to keep you moving. To round off the night, NSB Resident Marcus Murray will be painting another dope live piece to add to the wicked NSB Art Collection while Amar hooks up the groovy visuals.
