6th Annual Bollywood Club Invasion Finds a New Home

Another great benefit for the charitable projects of the Amma Center of New Mexico is in full gear, as we prepare for the 6th annual Bollywood Club Invasion being staged in a wonderful new venue this year. The alluring ambience and mystique of one of Santa Fe’s most beautiful buildings, The Scottish Rite Temple, invites a new festival spirit with an expanded range of offerings, including an Indian Bazaar. 

This year’s Bollywood Club Invasion event will again feature the signature Bollywood-inspired live DJ mixes, delightful dancing, and vibrant entertainment.  Local favorite DJ Dynamite Sol returns with dance-inducing eastern and western rhythms along with DJ AztechSol and San Francisco’s DJ Shobanon. Multimedia artist Agramzu is back with his entertaining interactive lighting production.  And, a live Bollywood dance class for all ages at 7:30 will help get the groove on, along with special guest dancers on the dance floor throughout the night to inspire creative fun.  

“Like music, dance is a universal language, and when we dance together our hearts are united,” said Event Coordinator Saz Richardson. “This unique Bollywood Club Invasion helps strengthen our community at a very vital level because the event proceeds help provide for those in need. The festival atmosphere also helps foster a sense of community among those who come.”Arrive early, doors open at 7:00, to enjoy a delicious meal, stroll through our Indian Bazaar to shop the saris and treasures, and get your picture taken at our Photo Booth. With something for everyone, sample the astrology readings, chair massage, hand henna tattoos and more. A full array of tantalizing sweet and savory treats including traditional Indian chai and luscious pastries are offered for sale. If you stop by later the music will groove into the late evening until 12:30 p.m. The elegant, large open spaces inside the Scottish Rite Temple offer ample room for gathering with friends, enjoying the atmosphere and soaking up the celebratory energy of the event.

Proceeds from this annual event benefit multiple Amma Center of New Mexico charitable initiatives, including the Burrito Project which offers a free nutritious, vegetarian meal, prepared entirely by volunteers, to over 108 homeless or needy individuals in Santa Fe every Sunday. The Burrito Project has made and served over 95,000 burritos since 1996, in addition to sponsoring and preparing meals for St. Elizabeth’s and Casa La Familia shelters.

Planning and execution of Bollywood is a large team effort that offers everyone involved a chance to be a part of a great initiative. If you are interested in participating as a volunteer in any way, email Deepti or call 505-982-9801 x15.
