Dholrhythms Dance Company Celebrates 10 Years
Co-founders and headliners of Non Stop Bhangra, Dholrhythms Dance Company celebrates a milestone of 10 years of teaching and performing in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first Non Stop Bhangra event was hosted to celebrate Dholrhythms 1 year anniversary. Since its inception, Dholrhythms has grown into a boundless and unique platform for people of diverse backgrounds to come together, express themselves, and dance in a non-competitive and positive environment.
In Celebration of this milestone, Non Stop Bhangra is mixing up the vibes this month to celebrate the SF Bay Area artistic community that Dholrhythms has been a part of for a decade. The night will bring together some of Dholrhythms favorite local creatives and collaborators to create a mashup of vibrant musical flavors from Cumbia, Reggae, to Hip-Hop mixed with the energy of Bhangra.
The night begins with the “Baraat Mob” an instrumental jamm session with live horns, and dhols drums to get people warmed up leading into an interactive, fun, jam packed Bhangra dance lesson, followed by beautiful dance performances by Dholrhythms Dance Co.
The night will continue with special guests Aima The Dreamer and Bang Data performing live for the first time at NSB at Public Works. J. Boogie(OM Records), who has been a part of Dholrhythms journey from the beginning is going to mix it up aon the turntables alongside NSB residents DJ Jimmy Love and Rav-E with Pavit & Mehul rocking the dhol drums. Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar.
Aima The Dreamer has been rockin' crowds for years as a vocalist and MC with groups such as J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science, The Mamaz, Goddess Alchemy Project and Jazz Mafia's Brass, Bows and Beats Hip-Hop Symphony. Bang Data is formed by Bay Area’s MC Deuce Eclipse on lead vocals, who’s well known by hip-hop fans as an accompanying voice to the legendary Zion I and musician/producer Juan Manuel Caipo who helped propel the latin alternative music scene in the Bay Area early on in his career. Mixing Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop & Latin beats and infusing them with a soulful bilingual (English/Spanish) delivery by Deuce Eclipse, Bang Data has created a sound that is unmistakably theirs. The group has performed with acts such as Calle 13, Ozomatli, Zion I. Their first single Bang Data from from their full length 'La Sopa' was featured on the hit AMC TV Drama Breaking Bad Episode "Salud".
This is going to one of a kind cultural mashup creating an experience only found in the Bay Area.

Highlighting the ancestral roots of Punjabi dance while pushing boundaries with contemporary influences, Non Stop Bhangra is a genre-busting elixir of North Indian Bhangra music and dance, mixed with reggae, hip-hop, and electronica. An ever-evolving collective of dancers, DJs, drummers, vocalists, and musicians, Non Stop Bhangra is a non-stop party. Featuring dance lessons and performances with Dholrhythms Dance Company, and music by DJ Jimmy Love, alongside live Dhol players, live painting, and visuals, the group has won legions of fans with its monthly events in San Francisco.
Non Stop Bhangra was founded in 2004 when Dholrhythms founders Vicki Virk and Suman Raj teamed up with DJ Jimmy Love with the goal of bringing Bhangra to a wider audience. The first Non Stop Bhangra was hosted to celebrate the one year anniversary of Dholrhythms by providing a dance space for students of Dholrhythms Bhangra classes. Since then, NSB has made this traditional style a serious dance floor craze in San Francisco, drawing the 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 Collective has performed at some of the largest stages in the West Coast including San Francisco’s renowned Stern Grove Festival, TED XSF at Yerba Buena Center For the Arts, Goldman Environmental Prize Ceremony at War Memorial Opera House, Inaugration Ceremony of Mayor Ed Lee at SF City Hall, Michael Franti’s Power to the Peaceful in Golden Gate Park, New Mexico’s ¡Globalquerque!, Grand Performances in Los Angeles, Pasadena’s Levitt Pavilion, and Canada’s Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival and many more.
