This live experience is surely not one to miss as Delhi 2 Dublin is gearing up for a huge 2013 tour to promote the release of their new album, Turn Up The Stereo (February 19, 2013).
Comprised of 13 new songs that reflect the diversity of their unique sound, Turn Up The Stereo challenges the definition of urban music by thrusting it to the intersection of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub, Rock and Electronica, a blend that led Huffington Post to describe them as “a rootsy dance outfit from Canada that merges Indian music with Celtic music, a very odd mixture that really works.”
From the opening anthem “Our House” to the shimmery and soaring “Lighta” to the more propulsively pop title track, Turn Up The Stereo combines seemingly continents-apart musical styles while remaining cohesive and fluid.
Delhi 2 Dublin’s strong word-of-mouth for their live performances has enabled them to build a loyal and continent-wide fanbase in both Canada ands the US as well as the UK. Quickly becoming a fixture on the festival market and beyond, the multi-cultural band will be circling the US in early 2013 with Balkan Beat Box.
