Ó Foghlú’s fusion of traditional Irish, African, Spanish and Indian music forges a new voice . . . that of a new Irish contemporary classical music. On this exceptional album Colm Ó Foghlú has successfully embellished sean-nós singing with sensitive accompaniment and unique arrrangements, all the while preserving its most essential feature of spontaneous, free expresssion. Features such outstanding sean-nós exponents as Lillis Ó Laoire, Mairéad Ní Oistín and Brian Ó Domhnaill.
