Delhi 2 Dublin
Delhi 2 Dublin
Vancouver-based Delhi 2 Dublin is a group of five musicians who mash up electronica and world music, keeping it heavy on the Bhangra, Celtic and Dub flavours. Fusing tabla, fiddle, dhol, Punjabi vocals, and electric sitar with scorching electronic beats, the crew takes listeners on a wild ride through global sounds and synchronicities.

Originally formed for a one-shot performance during Vancouver's Celtic Fest in March of 2006, word of their foot stomping, high energy live set started to spread, and the project took on a life of its own. Since then, D2D has been busy gigging constantly, touring Eastern Canada and California, playing some of Canada's largest festivals (including the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, Shambhala, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues) as well as being invited to open the massive Canada Day celebrations for 40,000 people on Parliament Hill in Ottawa in 2007. They've shared the bill with names like De La Soul, Cheb i Sabbah, and Metric, and have found a cult following in many of the West Coast's smaller communities and towns. Their debut album "Delhi 2 Dublin" reached #3 on the Canadian Chart Attack world music charts; their new Remix album reached #1 and receives consistent airplay from Japan to Eastern Europe to the UK.

D2D is now getting ready for a busy summer of touring; they'll be hitting festivals like Sunfest (London), Hillside (Guelph), the Regina Folk Festival, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the North County Fair (AB), Faerieworlds (Eugene), The Big time Out (Cumberland), Shambhala (Nelson) and some other big surprises that they can't share quite yet…

They are also currently recording their first music video with their friend and director Michael Mann.
