Delhi 2 Dublin (sometimes abbreviated D2D) is a Canadian world music group formed in 2006 in Vancouver whose style is primarily a fusion of Bhangra and Celtic music.[1]

History[edit]

Delhi 2 Dublin was formed for a performance at the Vancouver Celtic Festival on 16 March 2006. Their music was well received, and the group stayed together and played various venues around Vancouver. They opened the Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on 1 July 2007. Since 2008 their tour locations include both large cities such as Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, as well as very small communities that host music festivals, such as Canmore AB, Lumby BC, Nakusp BC, Salmo BC, and Quincy CA.[2] Their first tour outside North America was in Taiwan in August 2009.[3]

Their Delhi 2 Dublin debut album, released 13 December 2007, reached #3 on the Canadian world music charts,[4] and is heard on the radio from Japan, across North America and Europe.[5] In November 2008 they released their second album, Delhi 2 Dublin Remixed, consisting of remixes of songs from their first album, and reached #1 on the CHARTattack world music charts[6] Their third album, Planet Electric, charted third on the Canadian world music charts.[7]

Their music video "Apples" was also screened at Deejay Ra's music video night in Toronto at the FILMI festival, North America's longest running South Asian film festival.
