Non Stop Bhangra(7 years) & Dholrhythms (8 years) Anniversary Celebration!
Time flies but the Bhangra never stops! October is always a very special month for us as it completes another year of sharing the spirit and energy of Bhangra in the SF Bay Area and beyond.
This month Dholrhythms reaches 8 years of teaching/performing and Non Stop Bhangra reaches 7 years of hosting our monthly ritual. Its been quite a journey but one that continues to inspire us on a daily basis. Its been a lot of hard work, sweat, and labor of love to keep this ritual alive and kicking. We are super grateful to have had the vibrant and beautiful SF Bay as our home base and thankful for all the support and love. Its been great watching this community grow.
This month we welcome back one of our favorites DJ Sep (Dub Mission) who will be joining Jimmy Love on the decks for a night of Bhangra mashups with live dhol by Rav-E. As always, Dholrhythms Dance Company will be bringing their beautiful non stop dancing vibes and sharing some new choreography to add to the mix.
Another month of celebrating life with good music, dance, and friends NSB style. Come join us as we toast and rejoice continuing the journey. We look forward to celebrating it with you all!

Featured on the Second Saturday of every month at Public Works, NON STOP BHANGRA is a unique experience that celebrates the beautiful and vibrant spirit of Bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music and dance.
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!
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.
After 7 years of full capacity shows, in 2012, the award winning production moved into one of the hottest clubs in the city, Public Works. With this move comes later hours, more room to dance and late night food provided by Kasa Indian. Becoming one of the ambassadors for the sound of Bhangra in the US, the vision for the New Year is to expand on the experience. With some killer surprise guests lined up in the New Year, Non Stop Bhangra is ready to take West Coast Bhangra to a whole new level!
In addition to the monthly event, the group 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.
