"When you hear the right combination of sounds much like when you learned that that blue and yellow make green something ignites. Take an electric sitar, a Celtic fiddle, electronic mixing and bilingual vocals and a new genre is born this is Delhi 2 Dublin. And this species has fangs."
The Rogue Valley Messenger
Delhi 2 Dublin (D2D) is a Canadian world music group whose style is primarily a fusion of Bhangra (Punjabi Indian) and Celtic music. Blending east and west, electronic and acoustic, mainstream and underground, the five member D2D crew takes listeners on a wild and borderless trip with their global sounds. The band fuses the traditional sounds of tabla, dhol, fiddle, and sitar with cutting edge DJ aesthetics, to create a highly charged multi-cultural dance celebration.
With an awe-inspiring fiddle player rocking out with a kilt-wearing Korean flanked by two bouncing Bhangra percussionists and a vocalist who looks like he would be at home in a Bollywood music video, D2D has created their own niche at the intersection of gritty hip hop and electronic beats, traditional Indian influences and that raw Celtic sound that packs a punch all of which make you want to get up and dance.
