Two punjabi guys walk into an Irish Pub, meet a hot fiddler, take her to an afterhours party and pick up a sitar playing busker along the way. Nuff said.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Delhi 2 Dublin continues to break the mold with the May 4th release of its new genre-busting album, Planet Electric. It’s as if the band has been sent on a mission to further spread their sound beyond the planet and out into the galaxy. They describe Planet Electric “as the buzz of the world plugged into a large socket, electrifying the people and charging up their energy”. To capture the dynamism of their live shows, all of the tracks on the album were road-tested for months before recording. They also spent ten days and nights writing the material as a group, an approach that has led to this album being much more representative of the band as a whole. The icing on the cake was mixing the album with noted UK producer Diamond “DJ Swami” Duggal (Apache Indian/Maxi Priest/Nusrat Fateh Ali).

The five members of Vancouver-based Delhi 2 Dublin come from different backgrounds and different musical influences. A live collaboration put together in 2006 as a one-off performance piece for a club night 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. Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, Kytami, Andrew Kim and Ravi Binning create a heady and energetic mash-up of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica. “Audiences love to see a band transcending stereotypes and letting the music speak for itself”.

Delhi 2 Dublin are road warriors. They have played major festivals in both Canada and the U.S. including Bumbershoot in Seattle, Earthdance in California, High Sierra in California, Stern Grove in San Francisco as well as such diverse events as SXSW in Austin, the Keelung City Ghost Festival in Taiwan and the Olympics in Vancouver. The band has an ambitious schedule planned for 2010. They will perform concerts coast to coast in Canada, everything from electronic music festivals like Evolve in Nova Scotia and Shambhala in British Columbia to festivals like Harbourfront in Toronto to the Winnipeg and Calgary Folk Festivals, before heading back to the U.S. for more dates like the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa. Where else would you see a whirling dervish fiddle player, a guitar/sitar player in a kilt, two constantly in motion percussionists (one Dhol player and one Tablas player) and a singer with the ruggedly handsome good looks of a Bollywood idol?
