Traditional Irish Music
It is rare to find a group of singers and musicians who can combine strong backgrounds in Irish traditional, folk and contemporary popular music with an a capella singing ability developed through classical choral music. This is the potent mix Coda bring to their music.
Drawing on vocal talent from the west of Ireland, Coda are seven singers who started developing their own approach to vocal performance several years ago. Their first album entitled ‘Mouthmusic’, released in 2013, was produced by Maurice Lennon.
Their second album ‘Train of Spirits’, is now available. The album was produced by the legendary Dónal Lunny and recorded in Clew Bay Recording Studios, Westport. Following a Coda gig on Inishbofin, Dónal and Coda members chatted about the possibility of collaboration. “I was initially worried about the potential problems of 7 different vocal parts and up to 4 instrumental parts happening together,” says Lunny, “but I needn’t have worried. It all made elegant sense in the end”.
