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 sound system 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 on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Nan Gàidheal and BBC Scotland. It’s been supported by Don Letts, who included it in his “Best Of 22”, as well as Tom Robinson, Mungo's Hi Fi, and OBF.
The debut album Air An Turas was released to eager fans on the 17th March 2023 and features stacks of exciting collaborations with artists from the Dub and Trad scene such as Cian Finn & Lana Pheautan, An Dannsa Dub are gearing up for a huge summer of festivals including the likes of Dub Camp in France and Monte Lago Celtic festival in Italy ! Keep your eyes peeled for a show near you!
