Traditional Irish Music
This is a third track from an outstanding album that was released late last year by Matthew Noone and Tommy Hayes. The album is called The Space Between and this track is called Junior's Lament/Caisleán an Oir/The Heron Jig/Raga Asawari
An Tara (which means 'the space between' in Sanskrit) explores the spaces in-between the traditions of Irish and Indian Classical music. The project features legendary Irish percussionist, Tommy Hayes (Stockton's Wing, Riverdance, Puck Fair) and Australian born Matthew 'Mattu' Noone (The Bahh Band, Martin Hayes & Dennis Cahill) who has recently begun to make a name for himself performing Irish traditional music on the 25 stringed North Indian lute called, sarode.
An Tara was formed when Matthew and Tommy met as neighbours in East Clare and soon discovered a musical sympathy. Matthew was also awarded funds from Music Network Ireland to design and purchase a hybrid sarode, particularly for collaborations within the Irish music tradition, which has been featured on this album. The music draws upon the slow lyrical style of East Clare music, Indian styled improvisation, and a plethora of percussion and experimental acoustic loops. You can read our full launch article here.
