Led by master percussionist Johnny Kalsi, this London-based collective is founded on the Indian bhangra drumming traditions of Kalsi’s native Punjab. However, Indian bhangra drumming is just the starting point for Dhol Foundation’s freewheeling style. Rock, pop, electronica, Indian folk, and classical music. The band brings it all together in the group’s wall of sound. The Dhol Foundation has played on film soundtracks and at festivals around the world, including WOMAD. This year, the band makes its Lotus debut.
