Bikram Singh

A Rockstar…with that perfect dose of Urban Desi. What? You don’t get it? “Beyonce” ? I don’t need to go down the list of his discography to explain what a clever genius he is to have combined urban pop, soul, and hip hop into his music. It’s almost as if he has a new age way of singing kaliyan but with that contemporary urban feel. What could be more 2012, yet so traditionally sweet straight out of the heart of Punjab? BIKRAM SINGH!! (In his case, straight out of the heart of NYC, woot woot). I won’t go into all the extra details of his talents. Only because you know them already. I will mention however, that I love and respect the fact that he writes his own lyrics. That’s definitely what makes his songs more divergent.

An Enchanted Experience with SonnyJi

Sonny JiA week ago today, Sonny Ji hopped on his 1’s and 2’s and created magic through his impromptu mix.

Of Course, being a fan of the Bhangra Mixtape, I was selfish enough to have Sonny Ji spin..How was I going to have him be physically in front of me and not experience the magic in real life? That’s like waving a freaking strawberry lollipop in front of a toddler and then saying, “neener neener neener, you can’t have this”. Yeah. Cruel. Anyway, I called a few connections and booked him an impromptu gig to spin 2am-4am at a bar in the heart of San Francisco.

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.

*Color theme is Black & White this month so join the crew and wear your favorite black & white combo to support the vibe.
