Delhi 2 Dublin at the Commodore Ballroom, Mar 5 (Free Ticket Giveaway!)

LN Delhi2Dublin 11x17 4c bleed WSG 04-crop

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 breakbeats to just straight up happy dance music. File under… best.

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 D2D had something people wanted. Word spread about their ridiculously energetic live show, and these road-warriors have been touring constantly since: 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 of “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 favourite 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.

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 Canada’s most buzzed-about bands – and this was not just a happy accident.

    I would love to see D2D and be part of the energetic musical experience! I have heard many great things about D2D and would love to hear their music at Vancouver’s greatest music establishment, the Commodore. I know that I will thoroughly enjoy my evening and would appreciate the opportunity to see them! Thank you!

    My daughter is volunteering in India this summer and I would love bring her to listen to some awesome music

  5. I would LOVE to go see Delhi 2 Dublin at the Commodore Ballroom on March 5th! Their music is euphoric. Hearing their songs reminds me of warm, summer days.

    A few summers ago, my family and I were walking towards the exit at the PNE. We had just spent an entire day at The Fair, and were ready to head home. As we were walking by one of the stages, Delhi 2 Dublin picked up their instruments and started playing. My sister and I were mesmerized. We stopped walking and stuck around for their entire show. I remember closing my eyes and blissfully listening to their music. What a magical way to end our day at The Fair.

    Send me to see Delhi 2 Dublin, Inside Vancouver!

  7. Brenda

  8. They make me sing-out-loud, dance-in-my-boots proud to be a Vancouverite.

  9. Pauline

    Love love the groove of Delhi to Dublin, and have seen them at outdoor venues, the last being a free show at Queen Elizabeth Park last summer. It would be a real treat attend the Commodore on their amazing spring floor and hit their tunes dancing in support of the energy they emit.

  10. CINDY

    my favorite band!

  11. Heather

    My daughter and I backpacked in Ireland – our favourite country in the world! We loved the music in Dublin and, combined with an Indian flavour, can only imagine the delicious music of D2D! We’d love to experience a taste of their toe-tapping , happy music!

  12. Shannon

    We were just in Ireland this September and remember it fondly. This would be a great time

  13. Jenie Britto

    I would love to go to this show and experience something unique.

  14. Sandy Johnston

    Can’t afford to go to either Delhi or Dublin but think this might be a nice compromise!

    music is a part of my life and brings a feeling of joy and happiness hearing such earthly tunes and to be able to feel the moment.
