Kíla ~ Soisín

The Model, Sligo February 5th @ 8pm

Kíla play the music from their critically acclaimed latest album, Soísin.

Lauded by the press as “magical”, “stunningly beautiful”, “hypnotic” and “truly spellbinding”, Soisín is the ninth studio album from Kíla. Soisín is named after, and dedicated to a young Irish woman, Máire ‘Soishin’ O’Halloran, who travelled to Japan to join a Zen Buddhist monastery and in three short years came to be regarded as a Buddhist Bodhisattva or a saint of compassion. She lost her life in a bus accident in Thailand on her way back home. While touring in Japan, Kíla flautist, Colm Ó Snodaigh heard and was inspired by her story. He wrote the tune Soisín, which, in turn became the name of the album.
