This truly world music collaboration marries evocative melodies with hypnotic grooves, tribal chants with fragile harmony and ancient languages in psychedelic soundscapes.

In November 2014, four of Ireland’s most celebrated musicians travelled to Aotearoa to collaborate with New Zealand’s much-loved, platinum-selling trio Trinity Roots - opening a contemporary musical conversation that explores the parallels in culture, history and tradition.

After highly successful concerts in New Zealand, Motu : Oileáin was chosen to perform at Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, to a sell-out show in the historic ‘Old Fruitmarket’. The seamless way in which musicians from opposite ends of the globe blended in a nerve-tingling performance, struck a chord in all present and paved the way to make this an ongoing affair.

Journey through the musicians’ relative histories of love, war, oppression, politics and protest and discover the deep bond between two cultures and seven seasoned musicians.
