Traditional Irish Music
Living the Tradition, an enchanting journey into old Irish airs is now officially launched!
Behind every Irish tune is an ancient tale of love and loss, of history and heroes. Cello player Ilse de Ziah takes a trip around Ireland in a search for undiscovered secrets of ten Irish Airs. Living the Tradition is the story of Ilse’s journey. Filmmaker Maarten Roos follows her as she discovers the origins of the music. Ilse has created solo cello versions of these ancient tunes. Along the way she meets with renowned Irish musicians, scholars and local characters who share with her the history and stories behind the music. Ilse plays her arrangements of these slow and intensely beautiful pieces in the settings they were written. The connections she makes between the music, the land and its people present a fresh account of Irish music and culture.
