adham shaikh + DJ Richard Medicineman with decor by Calabra at ROUND venue in Kensington! Advance tickets are $15

This round's theme is the SOUTH ASIAN groove! ADHAM + MEDMAN are concocting a dubby dancefloor infusion from BHANGRA BEATS to BOLLYWOOD BELLYDANCE. And for good measure, properly seasoned with all things INDO ELECTRONIC spice!

GLOBETROTTER is our monthly collision of world music with DJ culture.
