Vancouver’s Delhi 2 Dublin started as a happy accident when the then programmer of Vancouver’s Celtic Festival asked Beats Without Borders DJ Tarun Nayar to “put something together.” Demand mushroomed from there, until 6 years and 3 records later, the band regularly tours the world and these musicians are able to make a living off their music.
I know what you are thinking: mixing celtic and bhangra styles of music doesn’t seem to make much sense, but when you see the band live they put on a surprisingly compelling show.
I caught D2D lead Sanjay at soundcheck and we talk about about mixing this strange musical brew and more. Listen to our chat!
Delhi 2 Dublin “Love Is the Hero” This is the lead single of the band’s latest album, Turn Up The Stereo.
Delhi 2 Dublin “Apples” An older track that Sanjay tells me will never leave the band set list.
