Pick of the Day: Delhi 2 Dublin

Delhi 2 Dublin have certainly developed a fan base in Regina. This is their third visit in the last 15 months (first at the 2009 Regina Folk Festival, then twice in RFF concerts at the Exchange).

As their name implies, this Vancouver-based quintet fuses two divergent musical styles: East Indian Bhangra and Irish Celtic. And they do it in a high energy way that is hugely dance-friendly.

Backing them up at tonight’s gig at the Exchange is Winnipeg electro-funk DJ Cyclist. Doors are at 7:30 p.m. Tix are $15 adv., $18 door.

And here’s video of D2D doing “Laughing Buddha”.
