Part of a UK tour produced and managed by Asian Arts Agency

An electric fusion of Celtic and Bhangra roots, dub reggae and breakbeats to straight up happy dance music.

Delhi 2 Dublin bring their ridiculously energetic live show to the UK for some exciting dates this summer. Fusing their Celtic and Bhangra roots with dance beats, dub, reggae, rock and electronic, these guys (and gal) put on one hell of a show.

Described by one magazine as the ‘United Nations of Rock n’ Roll, the last 10 years of touring have seen Delhi 2 Dublin become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands. After all, where else are you going to see a kick-ass fiddle player rocking out and flanked by two bouncing Bhangra percussionists and a vocalist who looks like he would be at home in a Bollywood music video?
