    Event Description:
    “Whatever it is… this is it. Kíla are right there at the cusp of it…Somehow you get the feeling they lit the fuse for the big bang.” -Bono Formed at school in Dublin’s late 1980’s, Kíla are heralded as one of Ireland’s most innovative and exciting bands. Their unique sound has been ever evolving, rooted in tradition, yet inspired by a myriad of influences and ideas from all around the world. Often defined as contemporary Irish World music, Kíla fuse the effects of their own melodies and Irish (Gaeilge) lyrics, Irish folk instruments such as whistles, fiddles, Uilleann pipes, bones and bodhrán with djembe, congas, drums, mandolins, brass and acoustic/electric/ bass guitars. Kíla’s eight members come from the differing musical backgrounds of traditional, classical and rock. The result is a fresh blend of freewheeling instrumentals, furious jigs, and primal rhythms that transcend the traditional boundaries of Irish music. ? Kíla are widely renowned for their live energetic performances and have played in over 30 countries in North America, Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe. Notable festivals include The Montreux Jazz festival, WOMAD worldwide, the Sziget festival and, closer to home, Glastonbury and the Electric Picnic. Last year the band closed the Cambridge Folk Festival on their main stage. Kíla have also had the privilege of playing the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics, Dublin, as well as Possibilities, the event that welcomed the Dalai Lama to Ireland. Their most notable involvement in film is their collaboration with French composer Bruno Coulais on the soundtracks for Cartoon Saloon’s Oscar-nominated and Annie-winning animations “The Secret of Kells” and “The Song of the Sea.” Kíla was nominated for an Emmy in 2015 for their soundtrack to the film “Ireland’s Wild River.” Members of the Celtic Arts Foundation save 20% on tickets.
