Delhi 2 Dublin was a happy accident born out of Vancouver’s Celtic Fest in 2006.
Their sound started as an electronic fusion between bhangra beats and Celtic fiddle and has since grown into anything from dub reggae to breakbeats to just straight up happy dance music.
Founded by Tarun Nayar (of Beats Without Borders cred), Sanjay Seran (at the time hailing from live bhangra act Signia), and Ravi Binning (a professionally trained bhangra dancer and dhol player), D2D had something people wanted.
Word spread about their ridiculously energetic live show, and these road-warriors have been touring constantly, performing at music festivals across Canada and the U.S, the UK, Australia, Germany and Malaysi.
Eschewing the sterility of writing songs in the studio, and embracing the musicianship of new members James Wallace (guitar) and Serena Eades (fiddle), the band has based their new material entirely on jam sessions, recorded on their new album We’re All Desi.
Heavily influenced by their favourite Bollywood records from the 1970s, their love for funk music, and produced by Nick Middleton (of The Funk Hunters), the results combine the high energy of their signature live shows with a newfound studio polish.

The Kinshira Performance Group is a performing arts troupe
The group is composed of 10 performers, all bringing their own unique styles and skills to the collective, embracing the idea of unity through diversity.
The name Kinshira stands for ‘Poetic Movement’ by combining the words ‘kinetic’ and ‘shira’ found in scientific terms and the Hebrew language.
Based primarily in Kelowna, the Kinshira group has performed at events and venues across Canada.
Tickets available at Rotary Centre for the Arts box office or by calling 250-717-5304.
