ABOUT THE ARTISTS:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Non Stop Bhangra:
Voted as one of the best dance parties in San Francisco and 13 year running monthly production, Non Stop Bhangra is a unique experience that celebrates the beautiful and vibrant spirit of Bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music and dance from India.
Imagine a scene from a Bollywood movie smack in the middle of a thumping nightclub-swirling colors, the rhythm of pounding feet, & the relentless energy of brilliant beats - that's NON STOP BHANGRA! Ever evolving collective of dancers, djs, drummers, guest musicians, visuals, live art, and more, its a treat for the eyes and ears. Its a destination where everyone who goes regardless of age, gender, race, creed, or rhythm, lets go of themselves completely stirring up the dance floor with unbridled enthusiasm.
If you are wondering what braza – which is an adaptation of the portuguese word brasa, means, it is ember. But, it’s also a nickname native Brazilians use to refer to their motherland. The event BRAZA! is exactly what the red burning charcoal represents: the heat of a culture, expressed though its musical and dance heritage. When we say diversity we mean not just the cadence of the internationally cultivated samba beat, but also everything from Brazilian funk, Tropicália, hip hop, forró (from northeast of Brazil), MPB (Popular Brazilian Music), house, boogie, soul, disco, and bossa nova. Started in 2009, the vision was to create an event that had one thing in mind: to make people sweat to temperatures manufactured and controlled by turntables. To travel south, without even leaving the northern hemisphere. Soon the party became a must-go in the City. DJs from all over the map have come down for a chance to play to a crowd hungry for tropical sets.
MoTown on Mondays:
MOM DJS started with a humble beginning and a modest goal. The founder, Donovan Hall (aka DJ Gordo Cabeza), was asked to curate a night at Madrone Art Bar , one of San Francisco’s neighborhood venues. He decided to create a night he called Motown On Mondays. (MOM SF) The concept was to have a weekly event on Mondays that featured the music his mother raised him on … Motown, and make it a unique experience that had ‘family’ as it foundation. After its first year MOM SF’s attendance resembled a weekend night. What distinguished this crowd from the weekenders was the consistently positive vibe and attitude of the revelers, DJs and staff.
Today MOM DJs produce weekly events in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Austin along with being featured at many festivals and one-offs each year. MOM DJs is inspired by a creative movement that honors artists like Stevie Wonder, The Supremes and Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, and Mary Wells. We travel on the shoulders of these musical giants while celebrating and preserving their achievements for generations to come.
