World Food & Music Week: The Dhol Foundation (DJ Set)
The Dhol Foundation (England)
Led by Johnny Kalsi, The Dhol Foundation is a mighty Bhangra-style rhythm explosion of drum and bass, tabla and hip hop (with a Celtic twist), a powerful drumming and dancing spectacular: Thumping contemporary beats fused with super cool style.
“Dhol Foundation, from England, fuses the thundering beat of Indian bhangra with more leaden English rock rhythms and, like current club music, prerecorded vocals. Its front line of four dhol drummers had crowd-pleasing synchronized moves and a cheerful line of audience participation patter.” The New York Times
