DELHI 2 DUBLIN—PLANET ELECTRIC
(US Release Date: March 1, 2011)
The Band's New Album Goes Full Charge Into An Energetic Mash-Up Of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae And Electronic Beats


Hour Magazine wrote that “Delhi 2 Dublin is the United Nations of rock 'n' roll." They are a Vancouver, Canada based band that plays an energetic mash-up of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica with global rhythms and club beats. Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, Andrew Kim and Ravi Binning along with new members Jaron Freeman-Fox and Sara Fitzpatrick are diverse in both their backgrounds and musical influences. The band has been together over four years and has released three albums including its latest, Planet Electric. The album title is apt because the six musicians feel that they plug directly into the world's music and energy. The icing on the cake was mixing the album with noted UK producer Diamond “DJ Swami" Duggal (Apache Indian / Maxi Priest / Nusrat Fateh Ali).

A live collaboration put together in 2006 as a one-off performance piece for a club night in Vancouver called Delhi to Dublin was so well-received that requests for additional performances led to the official formation of Delhi 2 Dublin. “Not being able to fit into any specific genre allows the band to create whatever we like and not be judged for it. Our audience expects nothing less." The band finds this advantageous for their live show as it enables them to create a flow to their sets much like a DJ would for the dance floor. “Audiences love to see a band transcending stereotypes and letting the music speak for itself."

The Delhi 2 Dublin crew is constantly touring. The strong word-of-mouth on their live performances has enabled them to build a loyal and continent wide fan base. The band has played several of the top festivals in Canada and the US and, in 2011, is expanding its horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. In addition, on March 1st, they will be releasing Planet Electric in the US. A new line-up, a new album and new international touring opportunities all signal that originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience. They have become one of Canada's most buzzed-about bands and 2011will only see them enhancing that reputation.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
