KILA

Kíla were formed in Dublin Gaelic secondary school Coláiste Eoin and are considered one of Ireland’s most innovative and exciting bands.

Their unique and ever evolving sound, while rooted in tradition, is inspired by a myriad of musical influences worldwide. Kíla’s eight members stem from the differing musical backgrounds, including Irish traditional, classical, folk and rock.

Kíla recorded a number 1 single “The Ballad of Ronnie Drew” with U2, The Dubliners, Shane MacGowan, Sinead O’Connor, Glen Hansard, The Corrs, Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey and a host of other artists in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. In 2010 they were delighted to welcome Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood to join them onstage at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin.

2017 was a busy year for Kíla. To promote Alive – Beo, Kíla’s third live album and first on vinyl, they performed over sixty concerts. Highlights included UK’s Boomtown and Beautiful Days, Russia’s KAMWA World Music Festival and Ireland’s Electric Picnic, where they filled the Electric Arena tent to it’s 10,000 capacity.

“One of the most beautifully euphoric live experiences” sBBC World Review ‘Softly spoken off stage and complete lunatics on it, Kíla have torn up the rulebook with their wantonly eclectic mix of styles, Brilliant!’
Hot Press

“Whatever it is… this is it. Kíla are right there at the cusp of it… Somehow you get the feeling they lit the fuse for the big bang.” Bono
