Indie Spotlight: DJ Kalkutta

Posted in News on January 4, 2012

Who is DJ Kalkutta? To put it simply, a talented New York-based turntablist and producer affectionately referred to as Bollywood Barbie, whose real life “Cinderella story” only adds to her intrigue. Born in Calcutta (Kolkata), India, her birthparents surrendered her to a Mother Teresa-founded orphanage when she was just 2 days old. She spent the majority of her infancy there until she was adopted by an American woman who gave her a chance at a brighter future in the United States. Kalkutta has graced the turntables at every high-profile nightclub and venue in New York City. What really sets Kalkutta apart from most DJ’s is that she rocks as many concerts as she does clubs. She has shared a stage with Ke$ha, Kat De Luna, Ludacris, LMFAO, Talib Kweli, KRS-1, Jay Electronica, Theophilus London, and NinjaSonik to name a few. including Greenhouse, Tenjune, Juliet Supperclub, RdV, and The Griffin, amongst others.
