Aniar, meaning from the West, is a treasure trove of traditional verse, incantation, prophesy and proverb, a lively selection from the seemingly bottomless well of the Conamara oral tradition. Each piece is reinterpreted in words, by Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin’s translations and bilingual background notes; visually, by Ceara Conway’s inventive photographs and in sound, by the performance of three of Conamara’s finest voices, framed by John Ryan’s original music and adventurous production. At times a window on our pre-Christian past, at times a prescient description of 21st century woes, Aniar is a truly engaging collection of voices and verse from the edge of the world.
