Clíona’s Wave (live at the RNCM)

The Breath

The Breath performing ‘Clíona’s Wave’ at the Royal Northern College of Music, in Manchester. Taken from the album Land of My Other out now on Real World Records.

Land Of My Other is a place of memories and melodies, lyricism and lore. A place of sunlight, faerie-tales and rowan trees; of grief, incarceration and thunder in darkness. A place where ancestral trauma and colonial injustice meet blazing pride, romantic self-rule and hands held in a circle in the sea. Where songs are sung with feeling, instruments are everywhere and music lives deep in the bones.
