Delhi 2 Dublin playing a hometown show. The band recently released a new album, We’re All Desi.
The Vancouver-based band was founded in 2006 by Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, and Ravi Binning. According to a press release, “Their sound started as an electronic fusion between bhangra beats and Celtic fiddle and has since grown into anything from dub reggae to breakbeats to just straight up happy dance music.”
D2D has played festivals across Canada and the US, and performed in the UK, Australia, Germany, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Dubai.
The lineup includes new members James Wallace (guitar) and Serena Eades (fiddle). The record is said to be influenced by Bollywood records from the 70s and funk music.
