Traditional Indian dhol drums, whirling arms and thunderous beats! This is the mighty muscle powerhouse of the bhangra playing Dhol Foundation!

A mighty Bhangra-style rhythm explosion of drum and bass, tabla and hip hop (with a Celtic twist), a powerful drumming and dancing spectacular. This show is all about thumping contemporary beats fused with super cool style. The band’s performance features an energetic line up of dhols up front, bass, drums, guitar, tabla and guest singers powering out a sound that’s as eclectic as it is forceful. The band’s music is featured in Hollywood films such as Gangs of New York and Incredible Hulk, and it has worked with Peter Gabriel on the soundtrack for films including Rabbit Proof FenceThe Last Temptation of Christ and Reluctant Fundamentalist.
