CONTEMPORARY IRISH WORLD MUSIC.
Formed at school in Dublin’s late 1980’s, Kíla have come to be considered one of Ireland’s most exciting and innovative bands. Their unique and ever evolving sound, while rooted in tradition, is inspired by a myriad of influences from all around the world.
Often defined as contemporary Irish world music, Kíla fuse Gaelic lyrics, Irish folk instruments such as Fiddles, Uilleann Pipes, Bodhrán, Bones and Woodwinds with Djembe, Congas, Drums, Mandolins, Brass, Bass, Acoustic and Electric Guitars.
Kíla’s eight members come from the differing musical backrounds of traditional, classical and rock. The result is always a fresh blend of freewheeling instrumentals, furious jigs, and primal rhythms that transcend the traditional boundaries of Irish music.
