Delhi2Dublin is exactly what it sounds like:

Blending east and west, electronic and acoustic, mainstream and underground, the five member D2D crew takes listeners on a wild and borderless trip through global sounds and synchronicities. The band fuses the traditional sounds of tabla, dhol, fiddle, and sitar with cutting edge DJ aesthetics, to create a highly charged multi-cultural dance celebration.

Watch the videos on their site – give em a minute or two to get to the up-tempo parts. Its worth it.

Zee Avi, originally from Malaysia, is the newest artist on Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records label. Acoustic, sounds a little like a younger, female, Jack Johnson. Amazing voice!
