An Dannsa Dub-future dub from Ancient Scotland
Music is one big conversation. And few bands live at the heart of it like An Dannsa Dub.
Born from a love of traditional Scottish folk, dub reggae and dance music, together they summon the joyous, communal energy of a cèilidh and a sound system session. Their name comes from the Gaelic for “The Dub Dance”. Their sound celebrates the ancient Gaelic and West African rhythms that influenced reggae, which in turn, via soundsystem culture and dub’s pioneering remixes, produced modern dance music. Their live shows and recordings are a seamless, pulsating fusion of all this and more.
An Dannsa Dub have carried this unique, unstoppable sound to the UK festival circuit. They’ve thrilled a 10,000 strong crowd at Boomtown Fair and have headlined a sold out show at Celtic Connections, the UK’s premier Celtic music festival.2021’s self-titled EP “An Dannsa Dub” brought the group worldwide acclaim. The release has been played onBBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Nan Gàidheal and BBC Scotland.
