Delhi 2 Dublin

So what does Dehli 2 Dublin sound like?

“Well, they sound like what you would expect from a group who describes themselves as playing Delhi and Dublin fusion music—electric sitar, Celtic fiddle, electronic mixing, reggae, Punjabi and English vocals and a whole bunch of percussion on the likes of the tabla and dhol.”—Melophobe

Delhi 2 Dublin is non-stop world beat energy, a multi-cultural dance celebration. Where else can you see a purple-haired fiddle player rocking out with a kilt-wearing Korean flanked by two bouncing bhangra percussionists and a vocalist who looks like he would be at home in a Bollywood music video? This is a live performance that is all about energy.

The Delhi 2 Dublin crew are road warriors. They have played major festivals in both Canada and the U.S. including Gaia, Earthdance, High Sierra and the California World Festival. A new album, Turn Up the Stereo and international touring opportunities all signal that originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience.

A Taste of the Indian-themed Feast!
