Delhi 2 Dublin(Hybrid DJ/Live Set)
Non Stop Bhangra returns with installment #123 featuring Delhi 2 Dublin, a hybrid live/electronic act whose concerts have been likened to ’90 minutes of freebasing joy’. Famous for their energy onstage, D2D has played over 100 shows a year for the last decade at festivals like Electric Forest (USA), Woodford Folk (Australia) and Bali Spirit Festival (Indonesia). Headed back to the Bay Area after a wicked tour in India, this time Delhi 2 Dublin is bringing a special hybrid/DJ live set with the three founding members Tarun, Sanjay, and Ravi featuring a heavy electronic backbone, live traditional Indian instruments (dhol, tabla) and the stunning punjabi-english vocals of front man Sanjay Seran.
Their new album, ‘We’re All Desi’ sees the notorious genre smashers continue to evolve into fresh sonic territory. Teaming up with red hot producer Nick Middleton (The Funk Hunters), the result is a battle call for a quickening world – more truth, more smiles and a lot more bass. The super amped up new experience changes the dance floor game for these pioneers of the Bhangra mash-up game. Always one of our most hyped shows of the year, come experience a next level night of dancing as Non Stop Bhangra continues to push boundaries of the Bay Area Dance Scene.
Rounding out the mix, the Non Stop Bhangra crew will be in full effect bringing the usual colorful energy and vibes to the night. As Always, the night will kick off with the ritual Bhangra dance lesson followed with vibrant dance performances by the beautiful Dholrhythms Dance Company and DJ sets with Jimmy Love, Rav-E, alongside live dhol drumming with NSB’s dholie Pavit Deol to keep you moving all night. Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes with a special live painting by Marcus Murray and visuals by Amar! NSB’s photographer Odell Hussey will be in the house to capture all the energy.
