Chicago, home to one of the largest Indian-American populations in the U.S., throws some great bhangra parties—as long as you know how to find them. Their parties rotate venues and events are often held in conjunction with celebrations like Holi, a Hindu festival of colors held each spring and Diwali, a festival of lights and one of the most important celebrations in Hindu culture. About once a year, DJ Rekha, the country's preeminent bhangra DJ, makes a guest appearance.
