PARTY BAZI Returns

"PARTY BAZI"
From Persian, meaning: "Getting the hook up by having connections."

Our party presents a safe space for artists with roots in 'the region' to rep their vision, and also share a night of dancing with music from the Caspian to the Gulf and beyond.

For at least one night, flex your "party bazi" and come kick it with us!

She is one half of iBomba, a Brooklyn-based duo and party that has thrown immigrant and people of color-centered parties for the last five years.
