Non Stop Bhangra

I was emailed this clip by guest photographer MB Maher this morning.
It gave me such a smile, I had to share it here.

Non Stop Bhangra have been haunting the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco
for well over five years now, but this is their first appearance in
Los Angeles, first at the Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena and then this past
Saturday at Grand Performances in downtown Los Angeles. Their
willingness to hold Bhangra dance lessons before each show makes their
performance particularly generous. I’m a little concerned for MB Maher,
who seems to skid into every shot, somehow pulling off
single-camera coverage of a 5,000 seat amphitheater as if he had a
five-man crew.

(I had to find out the name of those fabulous “skorts” the dancers were wearing. I think it’s called a salwar kammez.)

    Watching this while eating my lunch at my awfice desk, using a computer that has no sound card. I was momentarily transported back to the ‘hustle floor’ at the Cabaret Club in Beverly Hills, circa 1976-a place I feel certain no longer exists. No skorts at the Cabaret, but lots of polyester and a few drag queens that had some pretty glitzy ensembles.

    I look forward to seeing this film with music-one doesn’t want to have to many Gloria Gaynor flashbacks in the course of a workday..

    Kathy, I’m awaiting your memoirs…
