Delhi 2 Dublin (D2D) is a live-electronic, bhangra, hip-hop, world-pop, hybrid act whose concerts have been likened to ’90 minutes of freebasing joy’. Famous for their onstage energy, the four member crew has played over 100 shows a year for the last decade at festivals such as Electric Forest (USA), Woodford Folk (Australia) and Bali Spirit Festival (Indonesia). Connecting roots to future, D2D features a heavy electronic backbone with live traditional Indian instruments (dhol, tabla), fiddle and the stunning Punjabi-English vocals of frontman Sanjay Seran.
The Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta presents OnStage, a program offering professional feedback to artists who are interested in touring dates in Alberta. OnStage 2017 sessions are held in Edmonton on Sunday, March 12, Calgary on Sunday, March 19, Grande Prairie on Saturday, March 25, and in Medicine Hat on Saturday, April 8.
OnStage gives musicians, singers, and performing groups an opportunity to meet with a panel of professional musicians and community presenters who are all familiar with Alberta Showcase. Artists present a 10-minute showcase then get 25 minutes of one-on-one feedback. The panel will react to the performance, critique promotional materials, and can also recommend future directions for artists.
The Arts Touring Alliance represents artists and presenters from across the province. Its programs promote and nurture arts touring, provide networking opportunities and access to professional development, which is made possible thanks to our funders: Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Canadian Heritage.
