Trísan

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.
