From California WorldFest and Burning Man to Symbiosis Gathering and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Delhi 2 Dublin returns to Nevada County, Thursday, September 29, for a full evening of dancing at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center.
Delhi 2 Dublin was a happy accident born out of Vancouver’s Celtic Fest in 2006. Their sound started as an electronic fusion between bhangra beats and Celtic fiddle and has since grown into anything from dub reggae to break beats to just straight up happy dance music.
Founded by Tarun Nayar (of Beats Without Borders cred), Sanjay Seran (at the time hailing from live bhangra act Signia), and Ravi Binning (a professionally trained bhangra dancer and dhol player), it was obvious Delhi 2 Dublin had something people wanted. Word spread about their ridiculously energetic live show, and these road-warriors have been touring constantly since 2006: mesmerizing crowds at many of the top festivals across Canada and the US, blowing people away in the UK, Australia, Germany and Malaysia as well as performing to awe-filled audiences in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Dubai.
The band’s new release We’re All Desi looks to be their strongest album yet. Eschewing the sterility of writing songs in the studio, and embracing the musicianship of new members James Wallace (guitar) and Serena Eades (fiddle), the band has based their new material entirely on jam sessions in their rehearsal space. Heavily influenced by their favorite Bollywood records from the 70s, their love for funk music, and produced by Nick Middleton (of The Funk Hunters), the results combine the high energy of their signature live shows with a newfound studio polish.
The result is a mash up of electronic and acoustic. Of East and West. True to the veteran band’s origins, and blazing into new lyrical and sonic territory, We’re All Desi is a battle call for a quickening world — more truth, more smiles… and a lot more bass.
Described by one magazine as the “United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”, the last 9 years of incessant touring have seen Delhi 2 Dublin become one of the most buzzed-about bands – and this was not just a happy accident.
