Voted “best dance party” in San Francisco, Non Stop Bhangra is a unique experience that celebrates the beautiful and vibrant spirit of Bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music and dance. Celebrating 20 years of productions in 2024, it is one of the major platforms in North America for Punjabi music and a staple in the SF Bay Area arts culture. Highlighting the ancestral roots of the 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. Featuring dance lessons and dance performances with Dholrhythms Dance Company, an ever evolving and eclectic mix of DJs, live drummers, and guest musicians, it’s a treat for the eyes and ears and a one-of-a-kind experience only found in the Bay Area.

Black has always loved music and while growing up in Houston, she started collecting records. When she moved to the Bay Area in 1991, Black brought her records and a dream of doing music. She recalls seeing Chris C. and Pam the Funkstress perform, and knew then that she wanted to be a female DJ. Black learned her craft 30 years ago from Sexy DJ at The Catch One in Los Angeles. Nadeeah helped her hone her skills and taught her how to get gigs. She has played alongside DJs including MAW, Fuse, Digit, J Boogie, Rusty Lazer, and Trackademicks. She has opened for many artists including Medusa, Erykah Badu, The Roots, Patty Duke, Tony Toni Tone, Yo Yo, Bahamadia, Meshell Ndegeocello, Ledisi, Alanis Morissette, Big Freedia, Hot Tub, The Lovemakers, Brandy, Goapele, Nneka and more.
