Delhi 2 Dublin is a Canadian world music group formed in 2006 in Vancouver who play a fusion of Bhangra, electronic, funk, dub, reggae, hip hop, Celtic music and a mashup of other genres. Delhi 2 Dublin was formed for a performance at the Vancouver Celtic Festival on 16 March 2006. The event was called ‘Delhi to Dublin’, which the group then took as their name.
Founding members Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran and Ravi Binning have followed a unique path, often incorporating the distinct sounds of tabla and dhol into the electronic pulse of warehouse raves.
The Vancouver-based electronic ensemble has developed its own decisive genre they refer to as “Subcontinental Pop,” bringing their South Asian influences into the world of Western pop music. Each of these songs has an accessibility that transcends the band’s personal experiences and reaches toward a depth of meaning for people of all cultures, backgrounds and ages. For the first time in their career, Delhi 2 Dublin feel as though they’ve been able to articulate everything they’ve experienced and craft a collection of thought provoking and socially-conscious songs, while still remaining pop-accessible and dance-worthy.
