  • Once these guys get going it's hard to get hung up on genre distinctions.
  • Sanjay Seran's hip-hop and dub reggae inspired vocals catalyzed the band's wild energy.
  • Though they are often described as world music, that barely scratches the surface of what this group is up to.

  • All this and a message of peace and harmony. Oh, Canada!

  • The audience was sweating too.
  • At full steam the quintet gave new meaning to the term playing rough.

Delhi 2 Dublin: Join the D2D Indo-Irish Dance Party!

October 5, 2010

Last Friday, genre-bending electronic/Celtic/Bhangra/dub group Delhi 2 Dublin brought their high-energy, culture-blender show to Drom in New York City as part of the New York Gypsy Festival.

Fiddler Kytami, sitar player Andrew Kim, and vocalist Sanjay Seran exuberantly bounded over every inch of the stage as percussionists Tarun Nayer on tabla and Ravi Binning on tabla, dhol, and sampler locked the beat down tight.

Our photo correspondent brought back these memorable shots from the Vancouver, British Columbia quintet’s joyful live performance.
