If you like beats and you like them loud, have them Bhangra, drum and bass, hip hop and tabla in Bethnal Green, via the folk songs of Punjab and Eire, this weekend at Rich Mix. Led by Johnny Kalsi, the Dhol Foundation is keeping the traditional North Indian Dhol drum relevant, mixing its Asian roots with electronica, funky bass and even Celtic fiddles. The Dhol is a very loud drum and the Foundation guys aren't afraid to move - expect a vibrant theatrical performance that will get your toes tapping, your ass wiggling and your genre specific musical sensibilities totally confused.
We've got a pair of free tickets to giveaway as well as free CDs for the winners. Just enter the prize draw below.Competition closes Friday at 2pm. Winner will be notified by email and can pick up their CDs on the door.
Catch The Dhol Foundation on Saturday 31 January 2009 @ 7.30pm, Rich Mix Bar/Mezzanine, 35 - 47 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA. £12/10 concs.
