about

“Al Kamar” is the first fusion between Irish traditional music, flamenco, and music from the Maghreb. 
 
Among the special guests of this album are Antonio Carmona, leader of the band Ketama and Jamal Ouassini, director of the Tangeri Orchestra. 
 
In 1990 “Al Kamar” was presented in Paris at theatre La Cigale, Le Cirque d’Hiver and l’Institut du Monde Arabe with special guests Manu Di Bangu and Jacques Higelin. 


All music composed by O' Breskey.

 
"Long predates Riverdance”

FINTAN VALLELY, THE IRISH TIMES

“Mesmerizing. Al Kamar is a snapshot of musicians in thrall to the sensuality of Mediterranean music and the impenetrable depths of the Orient. […]

O’Breskey takes few prisoners in his search for the sublime. […]

SIOBHÁN LONG, THE IRISH TIMES


“Flamenco spirit meets Irish Trad: Antoni O’ Breskey’s music can span cultures.”

about

Antoni O' Breskey Dublin, Ireland

“O’Breskey’s musical crossovers have an ethical imperative. He seeks to mesh the majority with the minority, the present with the past, and the vocal with the silenced, so as to “deflate the ethnocentrism of classical Western music.” For this musician, musical cultures are not defined by borders, but by historical roots that reach deeply across all areas of the globe.
