Pól Brennan collaborates with Chinese flautist Guo Yue and Japanese percussionist Joji Hirota.
The Celtic-Oriental fusion conjures up magical imagery – breathless flutes, driving percussion and spacious keyboards.
Pól Brennan is an Irish singer, songwriter and producer who came to prominence as a member of the family band Clannad and co-wrote their hit song ‘Theme from Harry’s Game’. He left the group in 1990, but rejoined in 2011.
Trísan connects Pól with two other Real World Records artists Joji Hirota and Guo Yue.
Hirota is a Japanese percussionist, composer, singer and flautist who trained as a classical musician in his native Japan, and has now spent much of his life in England freely blending instruments and influences to create a music that is uniquely his own.
Chinese musician Guo Yue is the master of the bamboo flute, creating breathy, curvaceous voices that bend and swoop and sometimes almost purr. Poignantly conveying yearning, loss, parting, anticipation and joy.
Pól Brennan (ex-Clannad), Joji Hirota and Guo Yue created Trísan – a musical meeting point of extraordinary depth and beauty – during Real World Recording Week in 1992. This Celtic-Oriental fusion conjures up magical imagery - breathless flutes, driving percussion and spacious keyboards.
In August 1991 Real World Studios opened its doors to over 75 artists from 20 countries for a unique recording project. This album is the first of two volumes containing fascinating musical encounters between established and lesser-known artists from across the world at Real World Recording Week.
From his early years in The Hutongs of North-East Beijing, through the Cultural Revolution that exploded in 1966 when he was just eight years old, to his departure for London in 1982 and his vivid, bitter-sweet memories of recent visits back to China, Music, Food and Love paints a vivid picture of a remarkable life.
