We are celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day with Kila! Hailed as one of Ireland’s most innovative and energetic bands, their most recent collaboration has seen them develop the music for Tomm Moore’s Song of the Sea. Long considered to be at the forefront of traditional and world music in Ireland, they have an ability to absorb influences from across the globe and infuse a solid rhythmical undercurrent with modern urban consciousness.
The seven piece, all from Dublin, play a wide variety of instruments: Rónán Ó Snodaigh (bodhrán, djembe, congas, bongos, guitar and vocals); Rossa Ó Snodaigh (tin whistle, low whistle, clarinet, bazouki, mandolin, bones and vocals); Colm Ó Snodaigh (flute, tin whistle, guitar, saxophone, percussion and vocals); Lance Hogan (guitar, drums, and vocals); Brian Hogan (bass, double bass and vocals); Dee Armstrong (fiddle, viola, hammered dulcimer, accordion and bodhrán); Eoin Dillon (uileann pipes, tin whistle, low whistle, shakers and vocals)
