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 and European festival circuits. They thrilled a 10,000 strong crowd at Boomtown Fair, headlined sold out shows at Celtic Connections and tore up the main stage at DubCamp.

2021’s self-titled EP brought the group worldwide acclaim. This was followed by the release of their debut album in March 23 which features stacks of exciting collaborations and a collection of Remixes built from the album in February 24.

March 2024 brings the release of the new single ‘Kick Up The Dust’ featuring award winning Gaelic singer Josie Duncan alongside a dub mix from Italian Dub master, Paolo Baldini DubFiles.

Following nominations for Live Act Of The Year at both the Scots Trad Music Awards and the Scottish Alternative Music Awards in 2023, the band are back on tour across the UK and Europe throughout 2024.
