Radio 3: Ceumannan and LAHIRA
A few weeks ago, me and singer Anne Martin presented our Indo-Gaelic project "Ceumannan" at the PRS New Music Biennial in Hull and at the Southbank Centre in London. BBC Radio 3 recorded the live session and it can now be streamed via the BBC iPlayer from here.
"Ceumannan" the project has now become the band LAHIRA. It is an ongoing musical exploration of Gaelic song, North Indian Raga, beatboxing, electronics and Indian percussion. The song and music content is based around the themes of separation, migration, land and the legacy of colonialism.
