Thank Delhi 2 Dublin for having a small break in their otherwise intense worldwide touring schedule to allow time for Tarun Nayar to showcase his beautiful new album live for Canadian audiences this spring.
Nayar visits the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland on April 8.
With over 10 years of travelling the globe, collecting sounds and experiences, Nayar compiled 22º of Beatitude, his first solo project.
Last year alone, Delhi 2 Dublin played over 150 shows in North America and across the world.
Despite the jam-packed schedule, Tarun admits, “It can be brutal, and there isn’t a whole lot of sleep involved, but it’s hugely inspiring to be meeting so many people in so many places, and to get on stage and do what I love night after night.”
As a departure from the D2D live experience, expect Tarun’s show to be a multimedia-heavy exploration of the album’s material. Through live visuals and performances, the show will bring to life the people and places that inspired Tarun in his travels.
Also touring with Tarun will be visual artist, Electrabelle, master percussionist and drummer Dave (Sharmaji) Sharma (Sub Swara, NY) and glitch-hop duo BPM (Rup Sidhu and Nadia Chaney). The show promises to range from bhangra to drum’n’bass to chill-out.
To give back to the people and places that have inspired him, Tarun has committed half of all the proceeds of 22º of Beatitude to charity.
As he spends much of his time in Asia, a large portion of the funds will be directed towards building homes for the destitute, as well as supporting education, and social programs.
