Canadian world beat artists Delhi 2 Dublin, a FaerieCon favorite, will headline our Good Faeries Ball, Friday February 22nd, in 2013!
Famous for their electric performances, Delhi 2 Dublin, dubbed ”the United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll,” are heading to the Faerieworlds 2012 Main Stage in their never-ending mission to “electrify the people, to charge up their energy.” A mold-breaking fusion of sounds from across the world, Delhi 2 Dublin merges global rhythms with pounding club beats.
A mix of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub, Reggae and Electronica with global rhythms and club beats, Dehli 2 Dublin take pride in creating a genre-hopping live experience that inspires “a highly charged multi-cultural dance celebration.” Their no-limits style has taken them all over the world to massive acclaim, constantly evolving and changing in the process, or as the band puts it: “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.”
“Delhi 2 Dublin is non-stop world beat energy. Where else can you see a purple haired fiddle player rocking out with a kilt-wearing Korean flanked by two bouncing bhangra percussionists and a vocalist who looks like he would be at home in a Bollywood music video? This live performance was all about energy. Delhi 2 Dublin captured the crowd — holding us all hostage. The band couldn’t seem to contain their enthusiasm.” - Oh Snap
Dehli 2 Dublin has become a regular fixture at Faerieworlds, and for good reason. Their cultural and musical mix not only inspires ecstatic reveling, the joy that comes from releasing your inhibitions and dancing, but also mirrors the unique world and spirit created at our events. This band transports you, opens the gates to faerie, and allows for the sublime to take hold.
“Imagine the energy and cultural fervor of a huge Indian wedding party colliding with a bunch of drunken Irishmen dancing on a wooden table with fiddles! Delhi 2 Dublin has created their own niche at the intersection of gritty hip hop and electronic beats, traditional Indian influences and that raw Celtic sound that packs a punch – all of which make you want to get up and dance.” - Evolving Music
