Desi Dhamaka is an annual, student-run, South Asian cultural showcase at the University of Washington. It has grown to become a significant annual event of the Pacific Northwest. The mission of the show is to demonstrate our pride in South Asian culture and its performing arts by providing the platform for UW students to showcase their talent to the UW student body and the great Northwest community.
CELEBRATING SOUTH ASIAN PERFORMING ARTS
BRINGING COMMUNITY TOGETHER
Desi Dhamaka is an annual event celebrating South Asian arts and culture in the greater Seattle area. Every year, the show is filled with high energy dances, amazing musical performances, and hilarious skits!
DD began in 2002, to an audience of only 50 people in Kane Hall, through the collaborative efforts of the five South Asian Student organizations: South Asian Student Association, Indian Student Association, Pakistani Student Association, Bengali Student Association, and Sight Beta Rho Fraternity. Within a few years, the show outgrew its location and moved to the prestigious Meany Hall, bringing in audiences from all over the Pacific Northwest.
