The fusion band from Vancouver has made several appearance in our town, the most recent of which was at last year’s Masque Costume Ball, part of Kicking Horse Culture’s Snow King Masque Parade.

Formed in 2006, Delhi 2 Dublin combines Bhangra (folk music of India’s Punjab state) and Celtic music, fusing Indian beats with Celtic melodies.

They have toured the world, playing top festivals in Canada (including the Canada Day festivities in Ottawa and the Vancouver Winter Olympics), the United Kingdom and the United States. In 2011 they even ventured further into Europe and the Pacific Rim.

They have been described as the “United Nations of rock ‘n roll,” and have become one of Canada’s most buzzed about bands.

In December, 2012, Bif Naked told the Vancouver Sun that even though she is going through a health scare right now, she really hopes to be able to collaborate with Delhi 2 Dublin soon.

Tickets for the Rockwater show will be available starting Jan. 10 at Plain Wayne and Jane for $15 each.
