Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Delhi 2 Dublin
Delhi 2 Dublin’s songs and the band itself reflect the cultural diversity present in many major cities around the world. They challenge the definition of urban music and drag it to the intersection of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae, Rock and Electronica. They have created their own niche. Tarun Nayar, who handles the electronics and plays table in the band states, “As a band, we’re not interested in making the same album over and over again. The music we’re inspired by changes almost weekly. At the moment we’re loving Santigold, Major Lazer, Jazzy B, Burial, Buraka Som Sistema, Four Tet, Moombahton and tons of underground stuff, which is quite different from the music we were listening to when we made our last album.”
The Delhi 2 Dublin crew is constantly touring. The road warriors feel that they plug directly into the world’s music and energy. The strong word-of-mouth for 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, the UK and the U.S. and, in 2011, expanded its horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. Described by one magazine as the “United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”, they have become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands.

Tickets are $24 for Members and $29 for Non-Members (plus applicable taxes and fees) and can be purchased at the Box Office Thursday – Saturday between 12pm and 4pm.
