Synopsis

Amazon.com
Heralded as the future of Irish music, Kila discourse in a cut-loose Afro Celt sound that's fresh, funky, and altogether disarming. In polar opposition to what many modern bands do, aping acoustic beats with electronic means, the septet Kila hit a stellar tribal ceilidh groove, translating what might otherwise be electronic sounds back into acoustic indigenous instrumentation and timing. The group sings, chants, and raps in Gaelic, surrounded by fantastically frenetic fiddle, Uilleann pipes, flute, bodhran, bouzouki, guitar, and bass. Tóg É Go Bog É (Gaelic for "take it easy") features 14 brilliant pieces of caustic beauty that range from dervishlike hypnotic frenzy to ambient-textured soundscape to flyaway acid reels to generously progressive tripped-out traditionally based tunes. Kila are the Pogues meet Dave Matthews Band multiplied by the Incredible String Band meets Dirty Three, but not really. They'll blow your lid. Guaranteed. --Paige La Grone

CD Reviews

Ireland's Grateful Dead
G. McDonnell | 02/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Multi-facetted, frenzied, graceful, bohemian, contemporary Irish tunes and poetic lyrics that are energetic to the end and written and performed by this Irish musical pantheon that have obviously made a pact with the fairies. Fair play to ye lads! Magical stuff from a group that is sure to acquire a cult following. Buy it. Buy 'em all and watch out for their live performances. Blasta go deo. Tóg go bog é agus sin sin."
A raw and "reel" disc
Sean O Gallchoir | CT, USA | 03/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really great band to see live if you ever get theopportunity. This is one of those discs that you can listen to overand over again; it is by far the most frequently played in our collection. For some inspirational yet simple lyrics take time to translate the Gaelic songs. You might like to check out an artist called Susan McKeown too. END"

"Great addition to a Irish Trad collection but the best Kíla experience is the LIVE experience. WOW, do they put on a great show! Nice people as well. I can only see these guys improving their playing and recording as the years pass. Do your self a favour, Buy this album and keep in touch. Slán slán!"
