Afro Celt Sound System

The traditional music of Western Africa and Ireland is fused into a seamless blend by Afro Celt Sound System. The band's exciting performances have become a popular attraction at the WOMAD festival in Reading, England, since 1995, while their 1996 debut album, Volume 1, remains one of the most successful examples of cultural exchange. Afro Celt Sound System bring together top-ranked musicians, including traditional Irish vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird, uillean pipers Davy Spillane (Moving Hearts) and Ronan Browne, whistle player James McNally (the Pogues), Kenyan nyatiti player Ayub Ogada, and Baaba Maal bandmembers Kauwding Cissakho and Massamba Diop. Jo Bruce, the son of British bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce (Cream), rounds out the group on keyboards and electronic programming. Several tracks on the band's debut album, produced by Grammy-nominated producer Simon Emmerson, featured members of Shoonglenifty on mandolin, bongos, banjo, guitar, and fiddle. Released initially on the EMD/Real World label, Volume 1 was issued in the U.S. by Caroline Records. Afro Celt Sound System made their U.S. concert debut in July 1997. Their second album, Volume 2: Release, was finally issued in 1999 by Real World. Volume 3: Further in Time, which featured guest vocals on "Life Begins Again" by Robert Plant, was released in spring 2001. Seed followed in 2003, with the accompanying Pod DVD arriving the following year. In 2005 the group found a new home on the Narada label with Volume 5: Anatomic. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

First to comment...wo w . Love this group. I really like their unique sound of mixing different cultures and genres together into one great eclectic mix.
Report as inappropriate
It's funny how many foolish users listen to one of this band's songs and they comment about it on the band page. Why not put your song-specifi c comments on the song page instead? Song comments are out of context here. Sure, Peter Gabriel or Robert Plant each appear on one of their songs, but it doesn't mean those people are with the band.

Get a clue.

Peter, recognizable under any name....love him, brilliant

If y'all are talking about When You're Falling, yes. That is Peter collaboratin g with the group. He's only on the one track on Volume 3, though; Robert Plant and Milla Jovovich are on separate tracks on the same album as well.

That IS Peter Gabriel, I'm sure. I love the sound - I wonder how much of it sounds like that. Sounds like a Gabriel composition, too.

Great sound, nice balance, easy to listen to. Does sound like Peter Garbriel which is a good thing... He certainly has a fan or two.

Love these guys! First discovered them on the Stigmata movie soundtrack in '99, with their song, Release with Sinéad O'Connor on vocals. It's amazing and I believe it does a wonderful job of showing both the African and Irish parts of their music (imo)!

upon hearing this band, i was taken by the sound and vitality of its musician and therefore they became a 'keepsake' in my collection of alternative/ w o r l d music. hope they continue the 'groove'. the disc/dvd was a masterful play on space/time.. . . . g r a n d and marvelous energy.

"When I Still Need You" is one of the best songs I have ever heard. Thanks to everyone at the Sound System for making such beautiful music...you are true musical story tellers!

unfortunatel y the most famous song they made is "when Your falling", and it does not showcase the beautiful flamboyancy that the blend of African and Celtic music they this group pioneered

The woman is singing in my language, Kinyarwanda, the native language in Rwanda and they don't say who she is on bio...Anyone know??? Strange. Beautiful song regardless.
