DJ Anjali

With a name like Gitanjali (song offering) you’d think she was born to play records. Made in India & born in Oregon, Anjali was raised by Marathi banjaras & Cascadian loggers. She started DJing after watching too many boys run the soundtrack at house parties. After studying Kathak & Bharata Natyam for many years, Anjali hung up her ghungroo and became a proselytizer of Panjabi folk forms bhangra & giddha. Through her love of dance and her compulsive record buying/ music obsession Anjali saw herself as the dancer’s dj.

Since her Portland debut in 2000, DJ Anjali has existed as the city’s primary advocate and dance missionary for the many varied electronic sounds of the South Asian/desi diaspora. She introduced “bhangra” & “Bollywood” to the dance floors of Portland and is also known for throwing down dancehall, hiphop, drumnbass/dubstep & global bass in her sets. Well-known as dance floor instigators, she & her partner, The Incredible Kid, hold down several Portland party originals: ANDAZ (since 2002, now at Star Theater), ATLAS/Tropitaal (Holocene since 2003) & FILMISTAN (The Someday Lounge) as well as the Anjali & The Kid weekly radio show on KBOO 90.7FM, Tuesday evenings 10pm to midnight.
