about

With new compositions and new arrangements of traditional songs, this album was recorded in 2009, sponsored by the Gernika City Council.

"From Ireland to the World through Gernika. A semantic and metaphysic musical journey, a mantra. A traveling dream which from beginning to end carries us away through seas of conscience, deserts of soul, marshes of memory and rays of hope. Children, mothers and grandmothers from Salento recite in their language the abandoning and land-remorse of the progress; the Quechua singing repeats and broadens the cry, while ships are sailing from Celtic islands towards unknown lands. An Irish princess finds her Basque love in Gernika and another love is tragically lost in Lu Rusciu De Lu Mare – the murmuring of the sea – in the land of Messapi people, while Turkish and Spanish fight each other in the war of Puglia.
The Nomadic Aura always accompanies us in this trip and this adventure, and drives us to look for eternal roots and new identities, remaining over us like an angel pending among the sky, the land… and the music."

All music composed by O' Breskey except tracks n. 3, 6, 11, 12 trad \arranged by O' Breskey. Tracks 7, 8,9 words by J. Angel Irigarai.

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.
