Delhi 2 Dublin
Delhi 2 Dublin was a happy accident born out of Vancouver’s Celtic Fest in 2006. Their sound started as an electronic fusion between bhangra beats and Celtic fiddle and has since grown into anything from dub reggae to breakbeats to just straight up happy dance music. File under… best. Founded by Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, and Ravi Binning, it was obvious D2D had something people wanted. Word spread about their ridiculously energetic live show, and these road-warriors have been touring constantly since: mesmerizing crowds at many of the top festivals across Canada and the US, blowing people away in the UK, Australia, Germany and Malaysia as well as performing to awe-filled audiences in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Dubai. The band’s new release of We’re All Desi looks to be their strongest album yet, embracing the musicianship of new members James Wallace (guitar) and Serena Eades (fiddle), the band has based their new material entirely on jam sessions in their rehearsal space.
The Zolas are a Canadian indie rock band based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The core of the band is duo Zachary Gray and Tom Dobrzanski, joined by long-time duo Cody Hiles and DJ Abell on their upcoming album. The new album moves on from Ancient Mars’ lost love and nostalgia into a vibrant, experimental pop, stirring modern production into the influences that surrounded them as kids growing up in the ‘90s.
