Israeli electronic music duo Vini Vici rocked Belgian festival Tomorrowland last week and their set included that stunning song from the Eir ad.

Fionnghuala is originally a Scottish song which was sung in Scots Gaelic but was rearranged by Irish composer John Walsh for the Eir ad.

The song was recorded for the ad using singers who’ve worked with Riverdance and Celtic Women and Symphonic featuring Inis performed that version on the Late Late Show.

Aviram Saharai and Matan Kadosh treated Tomorrowland festival goers to the powerful tune as part of their hour long set this week and they even appeared to sing along to the Gaelic lyrics.

Or maybe they're just mumbling along like the rest of us!  Either way it's fair to say the crowd absolutely loved it.  It kicks off exactly 30 mins in...

And here's that Eir ad...

And here's a remix from composer John of Symphonic and Peter Staunton of Super Céili :
