With a name like Gitanjali (song offering) you’d think DJ Anjali was born to play records. Made in India, born in Oregon and raised by Marathi banjaras & Cascadian loggers, Anjali started DJing due to her love of dance, compulsive record buying, and music-obsessed nature. After studying classical Indian dance for many years, Anjali hung up her ghungaroo & picked up her headphones. Armed with an impressive collection of Brit pop, glam, modrock and French gems Anjali always threw in the random South Asian underground track. It wasn’t too long before entire sets were filled with Hindi & Panjabi vocals. From those early days a more urban desi sound is what you’ll most likely hear. Since her Portland club 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 diaspora. Along with her partner, The Incredible Kid, they introduced “bhangra” & “Bollywood” to the dance floors of Portland. Well-known as a dancefloor insitigator, you can check her out at one of her Portland party originals: ANDAZ (est. 2002,) ATLAS TROPITAAL, & FILMISTAN as well as her weekly radio show on KBOO 90.7FM, Tuesday evenings 10pm to midnight.
