After the rocking
Bollywood Dandiya & Caribbean Night, it's time to get down to two of

Afrobeat Meets Bollywood Night in New Orleans


A global bass dance party dedicated to unity.


At a time when so much
seems to divide us, we look to music from across the world as a way to
unite once more. On the dance floor, where you come from and where
you're going ceases to matter; all that matters is the here and the now.
