'The Sound of a Country' - Irish-Indian Music Documentary

In December of 2014, the Irish traditional fiddle and guitar duo of Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill joined sarod player Matthew Noone on a tour of India to play several shows as well as meet and collaborate with a host of famous Indian traditional musicians.  Myles O’Reilly joined the to tour to film and edit this short film, encapsulating the spirit of the journey.  I was the bridge between Ireland and India on this project, which is my passion and business. Connecting two countries which are very different but have a history together in business and cultural ways.

"The experience of the people here, the openness and the friendliness, the non cynical human interaction and connection that happens so easily in this country, we found that most inspiring.”  – Martin Hayes, speaking about his time in India

If you're in Dublin this weekend, it will be shown there at the St. Patrick's Festival.

What a treat it was to view this. Music is truly universal.
