Update: Due to the high potential for rain, the Delhi 2 Dublin concert will be held at The Main Street Event Center, 300 East Main Street.
Delhi 2 Dublin, a Canadian world music group, bring a fusion of Bhangra, Electronic, Funk, Dub Reggae, Hip Hop, Celtic music and a mash up of other genres, to the Depot’s Summer Breeze Stage at 7:30 pm on Sunday, August 12, 2018. Bring lawn chairs or blankets, and perhaps a picnic, to
Lions Park, Flood and Symmes, and move to the groove during this free, high energy, family friendly concert.
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.
“We’re All Desi” – the latest studio album from Delhi 2 Dublin -- was inspired by their favorite Bollywood records of the 70s and their love of bass music.
Eschewing the sterility of clinical song writing, “We’re All Desi” was born out of organic jam sessions in D2D’s rehearsal space. But it wasn’t until these ideas entered Nick Middleton’s studio that they truly started to take shape as they found their modern electronic backbone, a unifying component found across the album and the signature of the new D2D sound -- a mashup of electronic and acoustic, of East and West -- described by one magazine as the “United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”
