The Dhol Foundation - The Dukes Theatre Lancaster

Front of House PA system with full monitor system, all Martin Audio Speakers with Yamaha LS9 consoles both FOH and monitors.


Established in 1989 Johnny Kalsi heads the group, travelling around the world to promote the Dhol to the masses. Often headlining at major events and festivals such as WOMAD, Johnny has also played with a whole range of music groups, from the golden age of Bhangra, Alaap, to more collective groups such as Trans-Global Underground, Imagined Village and the Afro Celts.

The Dhol Foundation set out to really explore the capabilities and diverse range of music from various cultures around the world. This openness to other cultures sets the group apart from other dhol groups. This is, the unique sound of the Dhol Foundation and, the reason why the dhol has been exposed to cultures and countries where it has never been heard before…..TDF style! Rock, pop and electronic, drum and bass, classical elements it's all in there.
