Kila to bring 30th anniversary tour to Cyprus Ave
Kila will bring their 30th anniversary tour to the stage of Cork's Cyprus Avenue on Saturday, September 30.
When it comes to putting on a show there are few, if indeed any, contemporary Irish bands that can get a crowd going quite like Kila.
Formed in 1987, the band has evolved from a busker's collective performing on the streets of Dublin, into an internationally acclaimed band that have played in front of sell-out audiences across the globe.
Their street origins, combined with the their capacity to draw from other musical influences has given the band a raw edge that, in spite of various line up changes over the years, they have managed to develop into a unique sound quite unlike any other Irish music group.
With its roots in traditional Irish, Kila's sound features strong percussive-like singing and gorgeous melodies driven by a serious rhythmical undercurrent. Kila has created their own distinctive style of world music, which has won over audiences around the world through their many studio recordings and spectacular live performances.
With their blend of Gaelic poetry, folk instruments and dance floor beats, Kila has transcended the boundaries of traditional Irish music to create an inspirational, free-wheeling fusion that has propelled them to the forefront of the international world music scene.
