OK, class, raise your hand if you’re down with the bhangra sound. Better yet, throw both your hands in the air and give ’em a slick flick at the wrist in your best approximation of the Punjabi party-down style.

If you’re digging the North Indian dance floor thunder of bhangra — DJ Burn and DJ Styxxx sound that takes the big boom of the dhol drum and the needling treble riffs of the stringed tumbi, then amps them up electronically into a ferocious frenzy of fun — you’ll dig Diwali Night 2007 Saturday night.

Burn and Styxxx of Veera Productions will blend bhangra and hindi with hip-hop for a night of Bollygood. — Suzy Stump
