The lights of Ranzanico (Diarmaid & Donncha Moynihan)

Diarmaid’s new album, The Lights of Ranzanico, is a collaboration with his brother, guitarist and producer Donncha Moynihan. It is collection of beautiful original tunes fused with Irish and European melodies. It once again demonstrates his creative vision and extraordinary lyrical approach to using the sound of the uilleann pipes across a wide range of music. The album bursts into life with a big band sound featuring a wonderful collaboration with Galician gaita maestro Anxo Lorenzo, British jazz drumming legend Nic France and topclass Irish traditional musicians Christy Leahy on accordion and Deirdre Moynihan on fiddle. Brazilian trumpet player Tonynho dos Santos helps create a wonderful summery sound for a number of tracks throughout the album including The Ivory Lady and The Straits of Sherkin. These contrast beautifully with the explosive track Against the Tide featuring an uilleann pipe bagad in the Breton style. This album is a true groundbreaking collection of music which will be a landmark for many years to come.
